Since I'm only a few days into my journey as an empty nester (the youngest just moved out of state for college), I thought this new phase of my life would lend itself well to GREEN QUILTING. What is green quilting? Basically, it's using what you already have. It's making do. It's being creative by using things in different ways. And it's about making beautiful quilts.
My goal with Green Quilting is as follows:
1. For one entire year, I will not buy any new fabric, books, rulers, etc., for my quilting.
2. The only items I'm allowing myself to buy as needed, are machine needles, thread, and rotary blades. When I do so, I promise to report these purchases here!
3. In addition to making use of my stash, I pledge to use other recycled items in my art quilts.
So join the bandwagon! This is our chance, quilters, to make a difference in the world, in our own small way.
