Greetje Hein-Recycle- Trashcan
To me when you recycle you re-use things as much as possible. What you throw away you separate. Paper, glass, etc. in a different bin. Your trashcan will be almost empty. All to protect the environment.
On my quilt you see three different bins. Because we separate our waste we need less bins. Just one instead of three in the past. So the bins fade away.
My background is made of pieces of many types of fabrics in different shapes. Somebody wanted to throw this away and gave me a box filled with small samples of fabrics. The small bright pieces on the lower part of my quilt are cut of pieced blocks to make them square. On the edges I used the rainbow organza where I cut out my “Happy-flowers” . I covered it with black tulle to keep the very small pieces in place. The bins are made with leftovers from Christmas fabrics and ribbons. For the binding I used leftovers from former quilts.
