Finally, finally, finished my first quilt. I was so blown away when I discovered the Gee's Bend quilts - it seemed to make perfect sense to use up all our old jeans that have been hanging around. The HusWife goes through jeans like nobodys business (it's his balls of steel, apparently) so there was plenty to work with. I used 2 colours of fleece as the backing and some nice corduroy (or needlecord, not sure) for the binding. It so super cosy, very strokey and I love it. It feels great to have made something so massive and useful and interesting. I can't wait to get cracking on more.
The binding and backing and top all moosh together in one big coochy mess of loveliness :-)
It was a labour of love unpicking all the pockets from the back and then unpicking all the stitching on the pockets themselves, but I love the marks that came around because of that.
