    What a bright, cheerful quilt top! Also, you found a really sweet looking 15 clone - it looks brand new!

    This is a quilt that I made this summer for my daughter. Cathy had given me a couple of boxes of jeans. I'm still working through that stash of denim. I saw this pattern on someone's blog, and I started working on the quilt right after reading the directions on piecing and assembling. Piecing was done on Two Spools and quilting with the Davis NVF.

    Monica very nice. I love the way you did the denim with the light and dark sashing between the light and dark denim! Very pretty quilt. You did a great job on the back too!

    Monica..... I love it. Is this one of those quilts that you quilt as you go? I can't imagine doing those skinny sashing lines between the denim. How did you do that? They are so perfectly straight and even. And the puppies on the back are so cute. .... love that, too.

    I have a huge box of blue jeans that I've not wanted to throw away. I've been cutting out the seams and making pieces of fabric for future use.... this looks like a perfect idea for those denim pieces. I'd love to copy yours if I can figure out the skinny sashing.

    A good looking denim quilt - the sashing adds so much.

    Thanks! It was a fun and easy quilt to make that required no batting. It's a heavy quilt!

    I worked in large sections since denim is very heavy. The large sections are noticeable on the back of the quilt. All the squares are pieced together with a 1" strip using a 1/4' seam. The range of the squares are 2"-12". Once sections of squares were pieced together, I then quilted those section to the back fabric. After all sections were quilted, I then added all the sections together with 1" strips.

    I didn't come up with this pattern. Credit should be given to this gal: http://lucysquilts.blogspot.com/2009...im-quilts.html

    The order I worked was laying out squares, piecing squares into large sections, drawing quilt lines on sections (so the quilting matched up), quilting, attaching large sections together with the 1" strips, binding, and sewing down backside of the thin strips.

    Yes, I did hand-stitch the binding and backside strips since I wanted a clean look without any additional machine lines showing or decorative stitching.

    Monica,

    Awesome! I love it.
    I knew you'd make good use of those old jeans.

    Monica,

    I did check out the site that you posted..... I think this is do-able. At least I think I might try it once I get the UFOs done that I brought up to the cabin to do. I did a quilt once that had 3/4" strips and I really struggled to get those strips perfectly straight. It turned out pretty good but, whew!! Thanks...I love your quilt.

    Tenn Toga Project August 2013

    Jan came to visit and we went to the Tenn Toga in Winchester Tn for three day. My wife does not sew so we made her a quilt. This was the project this year and was taught by Di, our host of the toga every year. Jan pieced on a Singer 28 with original HC and I used a Frister and Rossmann HC. Jan took the finished top back home to TX and used her long arm to quilt it. My wife loves the quilt and we had fun making it. Jan and I are looking forward to the Toga next August.

    Here's my latest finished quilt, all pieced with my Pfaff 60 treadle. Its a log cabin, entered it in my guild's quilt show last weekend. The quilt judge was amazed at the vast variety of scrap fabrics, there's over 200 fabrics in the quilt. She liked the pieced binding and borders too.

    Skip, what a great quilt! I love purple, the carpenter's pattern, and an interesting backing is always a plus.

    Sharon, your log cabin is beautiful. I too love scrap quilts and like that you made scrappy binding.

    Thank you, JudyTheSewer! My scrap quilts usually have a scrappy binding, it helps to tie it all together.

    I love making scrap quilts, currently working on a String Star quilt.
    I'm not sure which category to put it in though.
    Here's a short video of me sewing some of the blocks. I'm using a 1914 Singer 115 treadle.

    Here is the potholder quilt I've been working on. Sewing groups made them during the Civil war for wounded soldiers in the hospital. They would agree on a size, piece, quilt, and bind them then whipstitch them together when the group met. Many of the wounded died and were buried with their quilt so we don't see many of them.

    Mine is all different patterns and sizes. I keep making customized blocks to fill in. There is a 3 x 4 inch hole right in the center that my rescued doggie puts her head through to keep an eye on me while I stitch.
