My Jeans Quilt

Here's some pictures of a jeans quilt I've been working on. After recently losing 35 pounds, I found a good use for old jeans that are not worn anymore. I had tons of leftover scraps of flannel fabrics that are used in the blocks so this project should hopefully put a large dent in that scrap pile.

I have one block done and it measures roughly 16" x 20". I have 8 more blocks to make before sewing the whole thing together. I am using a variegated purple thread that shows up so nicely on the back!

Double Wedding Ring quilt

This gorgeous wedding ring quilt was made by my mother. She worked on it (without me knowing!) and gave it to Neil and I for our 1 year wedding anniversary. After having this quilt hang in my studio for nearly 4 years, I finally came up with how I wanted it quilted. I am hoping to get the binding put on this weekend so I can hang it at the National Day of Quilting at the Heritage Center next Saturday (March 21)
