When you dream…..do you dream green?
This weeks giveaway is a crib size of Quilter’s Dream “Dream Green” Batting. When I received it in the mail, I wasn’t prepared for the batting to actually be green, interesting. Here’s what Quilters Dream has to say about Dream Green batting:
Dream Green is a soft, cozy batting made 100% from recycled plastic bottles! Dream Green meets our highest standards of quality, function and performance. Your needles will glide through this unique eco-friendly batting. Finished quilt may be machine-washed and dried with little to no shrinkage. Dream Green is wrinkle-resistant.
Each pound of Dream Green Batting keeps 10 plastic bottles out of our landfills. Plastic bottles are cut into chips, washed, melted and extruded into fine polyester fibers. These recycled fibers are indistinguishable from “virgin” polyester fibers yet are made without depleting our precious natural resources. To avoid additional processing we have kept the soft “natural” green bottle color – but you can rest assured that Dream Green is colorfast and compatible to all your finest quilts and projects.
Dream Green has been carded, crosslapped and needlepunched for uniformity, strength, and resiliency. There is no scrim or resins yet you can stitch up to 12” apart! Utilizing eco-efficient recycling Quilters Dream has developed a wonderful quilt batting that truly accomplishes the meaning of “green.”
So to win this batting, leave a comment on what you think about green batting (either the color or the eco-friendliness of it). One week from today, I will select a winner. Since I have never even heard of this batting, let alone tried it, whoever wins the batting has to agree to email me what they think of it.
I also want to point out that I am not affiliated with Quilter’s Dream Batting or compensated for my opinions (I wish!).
