Recycle, recycle

I thought it would be fun to show you some of the things I use for quilting that are free. I take the foam meat trays, wash them in the dishwasher, and use them to lay down strips that I am using in a quilt. Easy to grab them and sew away. The little trays are good to put almost anything in, but I keep them near my machine to throw in those little half square triangles that are left over from sewing. Talk about recycling!! The triangles idea came from Bonnie of Quiltville. I think most of you have heard about using chopsticks, but you know they really work.

What a good post. I'm dedicating this month to thrift. I love ideas like this.
