This year, make one of your quilting projects a little greener — and not the color green. Instead of buying more fabric, look for materials you already have around your home. It brings new life to pre-loved clothing, is easy on your wallet and maximizes your resources. What's not to love?
By definition, a pixel is a basic unit or area of composition on a display screen, one of a multitude that together form an image. These pixels are shown on a TV, computer, or a similar screen device. A pixel is just a sampling of the overall image.

Did you know that February 20, 2015 is Love Your Pet Day? We know that Bluprint members love their four-legged friends, as shown by the great display of cat quilts and dog quilts they've shared with us over the years! But we also wondered what types of non-traditional pets they were quilting.
Quilters have been using old clothing to make quilts for centuries. Making quilts from old shirts continues to be a wonderful way to not only create a beautiful heirloom but to incorporate memories into a quilt as well. Today, making a quilt from a plaid shirt can be a way to celebrate the life of someone who has passed or simply to create a keepsake that reminds us of a special memory.
T-shirt quilts have long been a popular method of preserving memories. Rather than stashing old or stained tees in a drawer or having them take up precious storage space in a box, why not transform them by keeping just the part that matters most? By consolidating your tee shirt graphics and logos into a quilt, you’ll be able to feel good about keeping your old tees and displaying the memories they represent.
