In the Finishing Mood

I finished another donation quilt today. It feels good to get some of these tops quilted and turned into usable quilts. Here's the backstory on this one.

Replacing Plastic in the Kitchen

I've been reading how bad plastic is for the environment as well as our bodies, so I made a concerted effort to find food and water container alternatives. It all started with wanting a way to not drink water from a plastic water bottle, then one thing lead to another.

Canisters before
Canisters after
Leftover containers

An added benefit, I can see what's inside
Produce bag
Snack bag for the lunch box

It was also interesting to me to notice I've had these Tupperware canisters for 35 years or longer. A couple of them were given to me by my Mother-in-law, who knows how long she had them! That just underscores for me the way plastic never goes away, no matter how long it's around.

Scrappy Bargello Complete

It's a wrap. I enjoyed working with a different (for me) color scheme. You can see the earlier post about this quilt here.
