    Smile Different Denim quilt

    I just finished my son's denim quilt top 90x104. He is very into western so he wanted denim and leather. The dark brown is a faux suede fabric, the light brown is a tooled leather look. Of course the denim is from repurposed jeans.The difference in the weight of the fabric vs. denim is going to make it interesting quilting. I will be quilting on my Janome 3160 QDC. I will not be crossing seams on the denim- just putting a sunburst in the squares. This will be my first big quilt to do on my machine so keep me in your prayers!

    That is so very different and I love the eagle. Did you find a pattern for that? It really sets the quilt off. Please do show us when it is quilted.
    She who dies with the most fabric, didn't sew fast enough!

    This quilt is really pretty. I have a Janome 3160 QDC also. It will be interesting to see how the machine handles quilting this. Please post a photo after it is finished and tell us how the quilting went.

    It's awesome! It will be heavy so make sure you have a large area to support it as you quilt. You might want a jean needle for it too. You've made a great top so I think you can handle the quilting. You go girl!
