I am starting to gather ideas for making some lap quilts from Denim. Our youngest daughter's husband took his life last May 6. She wants lap quilts made for her and their 3 girls.
I have made a denim comforter several years ago, and know it is "the pits" to machine sew. I ended up sewing with a heavy needle the seams on the top of the quilt. Then I tied it , and put a border around the edge.
This is as far as I have gotten: make a large 9-patch or 4 patch; something simple but eye-catching, for a center block, probably of Red and maybe Gold; not sure of the latter.
Then, I am stumped as to what to do next. I did tell her the 1st would be an "experiment," then the others pretty much a copy of hers.
Any suggestions are appreciated. The girls are 8,3,14 months.
