Happy Earth Day

Help keep Earth a happy place!!

These are the tiny snippets of quilt fabric left from my quilting projects. I do not want to add them to the landfill so I encourage quilters to use them to make fire starters, stuff pet beds or add them to your compost bin.

You may have other great ideas too. I'd love to hear them!

If you do not plan to use them yourself you can donate them to a local quilt guild who will likely use them to make pet beds to help a nearby shelter.

*Easy fire starters - fill cupcake tins or silicone molds with 100% cotton fabric snippets. Add melted wax of your choice (even candle leftovers and crayons!). Let harden.  Enjoy an easy start to your next camp, backyard or fireplace fire.

Happy quilting,
