    That would be my vision, too!

    WTG! I love looking----------then using. But of course, I've got more than enough here to use.

    I'm sorry! I left it because I didn't think anyone would want to pay for the shipping. If someone wants it I will stop by tomorrow and get it. It is probably still there since it is such a big horkin' roll of denim.

    With the rag quilts, you need fabric that will fray. I have used various fabrics and most of them frayed. I bought 18 or 19 pairs of jeans at a thrift store for rag quilts for my great-grandkids. They worked up great. Every other square was bright printed fabric. The kids loved them. One pair of jeans was my size, so I got a bonus.

    Outside of knits of all sorts, most fabrics will fray---------at least all wovens.

    I'd love it, but I won't pay for postage. Denim is way to heavy

    I'm piecing a quilt with a shepherd and sheep... It's from an Art-to-Heart book by Nancy Halvorsen. The Star of Wonder book. The quilt is a lap size... has a shepherd on the left side and 7 sheep with 1 heading the opposite direction of the others... a reflection of how the shepherd leaves the 99 sheep to look for the 1...
