Last month I shared with you a project that has been on my wish list for quilt some time – a denim quilt made entirely from recycled jeans.
This month, I’m excited to share with you my finished quilt top. I’m so thrilled with how this turned out. You can read about how I prepped my jeans in my previous post.
I was eager to lay out my quilt squares and get to sewing together my quilt top.
Of course, never one to make it easy on myself, we are mid-main floor renovations… and have had to vacate the house during the day for the last little bit BUT never fear, I’m flexible. I just took my Janome Skyline S7 out into the backyard for a little sewing in the wild. LOL!
I don’t think I mentioned this little tidbit last month but the Janome Acufeed Flex (walking foot) was amazing for keeping my denim from buckling and pulling while I was quilting my squares together. This foot has become a regular on my machine.
Here is my finished quilt top…
I’m just loving weathered jean indigo with a pop of colour. The little squares of fabric are few and far between but I know when the quilting is done, it will all come together.
(It was super windy out when I took these photos and I won’t lie, I was a little worried my quilt might blow off and end up in the creek!)
Ah, that little pop of colour. These were left over scraps that I cut into little three-inch squares quite some time ago. So perfect for this project!
But wait… there’s more! (Can you tell I love a good infomercial?) Be sure to tune in next month (DYK that I post on the last Friday of every month?) and I’ll share with you my final reveal of this project – how I finished this quilt with backing and quilting.
Have you sewn a quilt with recycled fabric? What’s your craziest story about taking quilt photos? Ever had your quilt blow into the water while taking quilt pics?
