All Organic

Well, I caved and bought more fabric. Not a good idea with some major changes facing our family. I just felt, however, that this project needed something specific. That is, I needed to use more organics to combine with my Daisy Janie fabrics.

I've got the design sketched out and I will test the technique this weekend. First, though, I need to source some organic or sustainably made thread. Any sources out there that you know of?

A 100% Organic quilt sounds awesome! As for thread, I've never seen any, but just found some on Plum Project Studio's site. They're a new store here in Vancouver and specialize in sustainable materials. You can see their organic sewing thread here: http://shop.plumproject.com/materials/threads/organic-sewing-thread-c83/

Can't wait to see how it turns out! I know you probably don't want to buy more fabric, but their are 2 matching solids from Harmony Art: light blue and chocolate brown in organic sateen. She and I collaborated on this color match.

i love those dark browns, anything goes with brown... the idea of using all organic is interesting, still somewhat difficult but getting easier to find those fabrics... I'll definately keep visiting to see how they come along.

YLI offers an organic thread called Fiberactive Quilting Thread, in black, white and natural. It's available in a 40-weight and a 60-weight.

NearSea Naturals Organic Thread is also available in the same three colors, and the same weights. However, you'll be able to buy direct from NearSea Naturals at http://www.nearseanaturals.com/browse.php?category=45.
