    My goddaughter and her dh are expecting their first child and they are GREEN. I've been online looking for organic quilting fabric with no luck. There are no juvenile prints and the prices are out of this world (and my pocketbook). Anybody got any ideas? I plan on using bamboo batting. The shower is in June. Help me.

    have you looked at bamboo quilting fabric? it is more expensive, but very soft, and has wonderful prints. With a baby quilt, you shouldn't need much fabric.

    Any idea if it's going to be a girl or a boy yet? Here's some cute boy fabric.

    www.fabric.com does have organic fabric: "Organic Cotton Fabric

    100% organic cotton, 60'' wide.
    Organic cotton is grown in an environment where no pesticides, chemical fertilizers or herbicides have been used for a minimum of three years. Organic yarn spinners have set isolated processing areas in order to segregate the organic cotton from the conventional cotton. The dyeing and finishing of organic cottons also follows a strict procedure for chemical use in processing, eliminating all materials harmful to the body and the environment."
    It is $12 per yard and they only have three colors!
    If you use scraps that would be recycling!! I would think that being made by her godmother with lots of love would offset the fact that it isn't totally "green". Good luck.

    does it have to be organic? If you recycle some clothes would that be considered 'green'? Maybe you could get some of mom's tops & dad's shirts.

    You making it and not buying a quilt should qualify for being "green". Or 'borrow' shirts from family members and use that for the quilt

    Buy some regular fabric and call it organic. The baby wont know the difference.
