Denim Commission Quilt

Denim commission quilt, originally uploaded by nkiblueeyes.

Made great strides on my denim commission quilt for Amber today. Many thanks to my buddy, Toni for sharing her wealth of denim, as my client didn't have enough for the size quilt she requested.

What you see here are 24 blocks made from cut apart jeans, jumpers and overalls. About 1/3 of them were given to me by my client. These were jeans from each member in her family.

I tried to include pockets and brads and even managed to have a zipper or two incorporated into blocks.

I'm going to work on my block placement a bit tomorrow and start assembling the top.

Going to order some brown flannel for the backing and binding. No batting. It's already very warm and heavy.

I'm going to stash away profits from this to go towards the featherweight sewing machine I've been pining over...
