That is not the only kind of composting I do. I also make Quilters' Compost. All the bits and pieces of fabric left from quilting projects. What to do with them? Sure hope you don't throw them in the garbage? Shame on you, if you do!
This is what I do with mine. They are placed in my compost pail for recycling. I try not to let my pail get too full before I recycle. In my pail, along with the scraps of fabric, you will find three templates. The first template is to cut 1.5 inch squares, that will eventually turn into a Postage Stamp quilt. The second template is for 2.5 inch squares. I am not sure yet what I will be making out of them and the third template is a tumbler block for a Charm quilt. Now, Charm quilts are not to have any repeats in fabric, so I have to pay close attention when cutting them out. I have also offered smaller slivers of fabric and batting to the birds, in Spring, for nest building. Or, if you are making something that needs a little stuffing.....children's toys, pet toys, pillows, pincushions, etc. I then store my cut squares and tumblers in decorative craft boxes.
So tell me, what do you do with your Quilters' Compost?
Until next week.....happy quilting!
