Black Friday Sewing....not shopping
Back to sewing. I pulled a couple of old projects out. This one is a circle jeans quilt that ends up looking a lot like a cathedral window quilt.
I had collected a few pairs of old jeans. Cut some big circles using one of my long arm tools.
Inside each circle you put a square of fabric. I recently cut up a bunch of five inch squares, thinking I was going to use them for another project. They fit perfect on the squares. This quilt is "all inclusive"....no backing and no batting. I'll sew them together and then I plan to sew the denim over the square and let it have a ragged edge.
After I cut up all the denim I had, I pulled out this project....
I still have a ton of shirt scraps left from all of the shirt quilts I've made. I started this one about a year ago. With all the little pieces, I expect it will be a project that will take a while.
