I learnt something new

On Wednesday, I was invited to spend a one on one lesson with a lovely lady in a town nearby.  She had perfected a crazy patchwork quilt using cut up denim jeans.
She uses all of the jeans...zippers, pockets, labels, and the legs are mainly used as the borders in between each rectangle.
Here is my first 15" x 17" rectangle:
 Then she got me to use an actual pocket:
I was half way thru making one with a fly, but the day got away from me and I had to come home.

It is a bit like quilt as you go, but you work on a piece of fabric instead of wadding.

Not enough hours in a day to keep doing it at the moment, but I will defineately get back to it as soon as possible.

Until next post...


  1. Love them. The different blues in denim always look great.

  2. Love the quilts you've been making especially these blocks
