The Importance of Being Eco-Friendly

In a quilt design class taught by Helen Squire, one of the topics covered in the course was batting. She mentioned that a new eco-friendly batting had just been introduced. Someone asked what made it so “green,” and someone else offered up that it must break down in the landfill more readily than traditional polyester batting. Another observant student piped up “Doesn’t that only matter if you are planning on throwing your quilt away?”.
