A Quilt Finish

Woot! Woot!  I finished a quilt top and oh my I love this quilt.  It is a quilt of my own design made from repurposed jeans of ours and new and vintage linen with a touch of corduroy.  The fabrics make this quilt heavier then my other quilts and it feels reassuring somehow to cuddle up with a retake on my favorite old jeans.

I tried to partially echo the Plus design from the front on the back and quilted this up on the diagonals.

In other news, I came up with a design for the Umbrella Prints Trimmings Challenge (Umbrella Prints: Golden Ticket) and I’m super psyched to share it with you.  Hope it comes out as I envision.  Happy crafting!

  1. Oooo I love this! My first quilt ever was with jeans and it looked..umm…very childish. But THIS pattern is really modern. I want to try it!

  2. Oh my gosh, can I copy this quilt outright? You are just getting to be one of my very favorite quilters. And man, is that a long list to be atop of. Very nice, thanks for sharing. And can’t wait to see your Umbrella Trimmings design.

    1. Wow, Jenny, thank you. You just made my day and yes please copy away. We all get ideas from and inspire each other and it’s nice to find some use for those old jeans. Just an FYI, because I was quilting with linen I used a 1/2 inch seam allowance. Good luck!
