Happy Valentine’s Day!

February 13, 2009


Not only is this quilt red and pink but it is also green! I used Quilter’s Dream newest batting inside; Dream Green. It is an earth friendly polyester batting made 100% from recycled plastic bottles!


According to the package I saved 7 bottles from the land fill by using this batting. That makes me feel good. Plastic bottles are cut into chips, washed, melted and extruded into fine polyester fibers. That means the batting was made without depleting our precious natural resources.


I am happy with how the batting works in this quilt. It is a thin bat but it shows up the stitching nicely. I washed the quilt once and it wrinkled up into that old fashioned look that I love. It is soft and drapes the same as other polyester battings.


My hat is off to Quilter’s Dream for providing quilters with a green choice! And, in case you are wondering, I have no affiliation with Quilter’s Dream other than being a happy customer.


And a Happy Valentine’s Day to you and yours!
