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.
