Last week I could do nothing but sew bits of denim together despite there being quite a few more pressing things on my to do list. I've got it out of my system now though and here is the glory and splendour that is my third denim quilt:
I really don't mean to sound boasty and ego driven when I say that, but I just love how this one has turned out. I'm really enjoying how the scraps of fabric work together with the denim and the lovely Japanese cotton for the binding helps to soften the look of something that is quite functional. (Incidentally, might I suggest that hand sewing binding in the park, in the middle of a heatwave is not to be recommended. I've ended up with most ridiculous comedy suntan across my legs and arms!)
So, this one has turned out completely different to the two that preceeded it and I've no doubt the next one will be different again. I really like this freeform way of making quilts, using the mighty Gee's Bend quilts as a starting principle; using up what you've got, every scrap (pockets and all), and piecing as you go along.
Anyhow, here are the other two quilts that started this obsession:
And here are lovely things to look at over at Our Creative Spaces.
