Questions - Recycling Clothing

For those of you that recycle clothing into quilts - how do you prepare the fabric? Do you cut out the seams? Do you use your seam ripper? Do you use all of the fabric from shirts - or do you discard collars and cuffs?

And does anyone make pet beds from pillowcases? What do you stuff them with? Can you use the scraps from recycled clothing? (I guess you can see where I'm going with this - is it possible to reuse ALL of an old piece of clothing?)

I suppose the easy answer would be just to do go ahead and do whatever I want, but I'm curious. That plus I want to be sure I'm doing it right. ;-)

Earth Day 2009

This is my favourite song for Earth Day. I sing it frequently, and try not to cry each time.

Whose Garden Was This

Nothing to Report

I'm quite a bit behind on posting, and there's really no such thing as catching up here, is there? :)

It was a quiet day - a little sewing, some garden work, some housework, and a little walking on the treadmill. In other words, nothing to report.

So, just to add some colour to this post - these are some fat quarters I picked up a while ago at Sew-Sisters. These may very well make it into a cat quilt for the local humane society.
