Green Steal of the Week: Mod Green Pod Organic Quilting Fabrics


I’ve never been much of a fan of quilts, and I’ve never even remotely considered making one. But give me a free afternoon and you just might find me at the nearest quilting store looking for fabulous new fabrics to use for quilts. I wouldn’t recommend quilting weight fabrics for heavy upholstery, but there’s no law against using them for curtains, pillows, art, etc. So when I discovered that…

  1. Mod Green Pod makes organic quilting weight fabrics, and
  2. That those fabrics are less than $9 a yard (at least at this retailer, compared to $39.75/yard for upholstery weight fabrics)

…I thought I was in heaven!

You can get some of MGP’s gorgeous patterns like Aspire, Bloom and Delight in bright new colorways. There are also a few new patterns that I hadn’t seen before, and I’m equally captivated by those! The fabrics are available in Spring, Summer and Garden collections, each with coordinating color palettes for easy quiltmaking. While I don’t plan on using them for this purpose, I can think of at least a dozen other ways I could use them around the house. And at this price for organic fabrics from a company that is committed to sustainability, you better believe I’ll be taking advantage of the deal!

Why It’s Green:

  • Made of U.S.-grown organic cotton
  • Printed with non-toxic, low-impact inks

Price: $8.25/yard

    I just ordered some fabric for my kitchen. I’m making a no sew valance that will reveal a shelf above my sink when opened :).

    I find this entire website is confusing, I’m trying to find/buy organic fabric but I can’t seem to find out how, no matter where I click
