Thrifty quilting

I have always been a "green" quilter.  Using fabrics I have on hand (yes, I have a stash), using pieces of clothing that have memories attached to them, keeping an eye out for bargains, etc.  In doing this I have been able to donate and give away quite a few quilts.  They have warmed and cheered up friends and co-workers.  I think there is someone in each of our lives who could benefit from having a hand made item to snuggle up in on a cold day.  Something tangible that reminds them that someone cares and is thinking of them.


  1. Yes I do bind my own quilts. I also teach how to bind in my quilt classes or one on one.
