Just because I have “finished” five projects, doesn’t mean it was start to finish. Often – as many of you – like to have multiple projects going. With this obscene amount of denim, I knew that there would be projects that I would start almost simultaneously. As I wrote in my last post, there are definitely days (actually most days) when I just want to sew and thus have many projects in “almost done” status.
Today’s project is made entirely out of blue (and some black, white, grey and even some tan) jeans’ waistbands. They first had their belt loops removed and then the button tack and their button holes. Still trying to figure out if there is anything I can do with these ends…
So, for today’s reveal:
It wasn’t planned, but they finished all about the same size and was relatively easy to cut them to 24″ square.At first, it was relatively easy to sew together. First in three rows and then the long strips together… that was when it got slightly more difficult and required help.With The Kid’s help maneuvering the large, heavy strips, I finally got it assembled. Creating the back – a solid deep blue flannel – was a breeze.
The next step is that the both of us are going to sit on the coach and trim threads!!
Let me know if you have questions about any aspect of the denim quilt series. I love comments and questions!
