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.
