We all know one of the best things in life is seeing a kid using a quilt! What quilter wouldn’t want to see someone in the next generation dragging a quilt around to the playground?

Oh, and did we mention a detailed look at the resurging eco-sew trend? Writer/quilter Mary Abreu digs into the whole upcycle/recycle/refashion thing that is bubbling again, and there’s a whole new sophistication and appeal to these reincarnated projects.
