    I finally finished my blue jean circle quilt. For the quilts I have done I had to borrow my sisters sewing machine. Mine weren't working. Part way through this quilt the zig zag stitch quit working. Looked like a washer or something dry rotted so I used plastic template to sit in the area where the washer should have been to finish sewing the rest of this quilt. The quilt is around 6' x 6' and this one is mine :D

    I love the way you have done this!!! I learnt this method last year but didnt know what fabrics to do it in, I ended up laying my squares out to make a handbag LOL - I make a lot of those. But I now have been inspired!! Thank you.

    Wow! You took a neat technique and turned it into a really special quilt! Love the heart, and the combo of flannel plaids and denim. Way to go!

    BTW did you use flannel or batting in the middle?

    yes the plaid is flannel. From my dad's, my ex's and my son's flannel shirts.
    Thanks everyone for the compliments. I designed the heart pattern myself on graph paper once I had all the squares cut out to see what I had to work with.

    spectacular! I love it! It even appears to have a pattern within the pattern, like a diamond in the middle by choice of fabrics. Very impressive!
    Kind Regards,

    Very pretty, good use of old blue jeans and flannel shirts. Did you enjoy making it? I made one and swore I wouldn't do another.

    Very attractive!
    How much do you think it weighs???
    Might I ask ... are the orange peel parts raw-edged? Or did you do the circle thing and turn?
    (I vaguely remember the pattern ) this is the first time I actually considered making one!

    Olivia's Gramy -- Yes I did make the same comment. something like "this is the only one of these I will do" ...lol
    I did enjoy making it, but sewing the rows together was a little tricky. lol I felt like I had been in a tug of war with a monster. But I did figure out an easier way to sew the rows together after about 3 rows.. I really enjoyed it after I finished it and it all came together like I wanted it to. :o)

    omack -- not sure how much it weighs. and the orange parts aren't raw edges the flaps of the circle are folded over then sewn.
    Thanks again for the nice compliments.

    Really nice--one thing you can say about the quilt is when you get the last row sewn on you are done--no quilting or tying and binding to do.

    There is a LOT to be said for that, eh?
