Trying to integrate denim

     I love denim, especially used denim. I keep collecting jeans, cutting them up and trying to make quilts without bulky seams. I did make the denim stained glass one and and the denim lily (on display at Campbell Pottery starting next Saturday; it is on one of the slides). This one is using charm packs I got at Houston from Moda, lots of gray Kona Ash and denim. I just finished the quilting on the Nolting. I tried lots of patterns to get my practice level jacked up. I cut the binding out of a striped chambray, but it is not attached yet.

I like this quilt. There is a lot going on. Nice job incorporating the denim into the quilt seamlessly while still nodding to it with the felled seam on the left. The pattern of blocks is different, and I wonder how you came to it. It is neatly done, but still has an element of serendipity that is very charming.

Your free motion practice on the Nolting is showing how your skills are really improving. Your progress is so impressive!
