    I have been collecting used denim. Other than,quilts, what kind of items have you combined or "quilted" varied denims for? Did you use a pattern?

    Thanks. I collected a fair amount when Goodwill had their weekly 50 cents per selected color tag item and the colors rotated weekly.

    many many many years ago there was a craft exhibit at one of the galleries in Washington DC. One of the items was a quilt as you go denim quilt make of various colors and shades of denim combined with other similar fabrics. I still have the box of fabric I collected and do intend to finish it someday. It was a strip foundation on the diagnol. I still remember it. I also have three blocks.
