Show 405 - Quilting in the "Green"

Featuring: Valori Wells

Posts On: March 2, 2009

We are all doing our part to "go green"... and the quilting community is no exception. Quiltmaker, author, and fabric designer Valori Wells shows how to make a quick-and-easy, reusable fabric grocery tote, and - as a bonus - shares other "quilty" items, such as coverlets and stuffed animals, that you can create to enhance your home or to give as gifts. To continue the "green" theme, Bunny digs into the TQS Treasure Chest and comes up with a variety of eco-friendly products for quilters. Finally, check out Ricky's technique for adding lush texture to your quilts with bobbin trapunto work.
