Most of the pieces in this quilt are quilting cottons given to me by my Aunt -- Scraps to her .. gems to me!!

I dont know for sure if its done or not -- I might do a strip or two of solids -- IDK yet.

I might even put a jean back on it -- IDK yet.

THIS IS AWESOME PM, your an inspiration! IDK jeans on the back would be pretty cool. Like recycled jean legs and pockets?

Thanks for all your posts, you keep my imagination going and your fmq is fantastic!

Ive been doing so much school stuff - I learn a little diff than most people and I need to "read" my school books on tape... and, I listen best when Im doing 7-10 other things at the same time...

So, even with loads of school stuff .. I still get in quilting time.

I might make a chevron quilt next -- I used the same block to make this quilt as jenny teaches in this lesson -- It was sorta very simple... 10 inch square cuts -sewn together then cut into an "X" = 4 half square triangles ... Simple.

easy.

I think I would really like jean on the back --- but this might not be the quilt to get it -- jeans + batting = too heavy and hot... just jeans = seeing blue through the white front.

And, yes -- Im putting the pieces under the Grand quilter at 1600 stitches per min .. at about 1.8 stitch length.

Today, I worked on my own election - and, tried to learn more about the EU. --- Yuck. I cant wait till Im dont with this damn BA. In MAY!

Very nice use of scraps!! I agree that a jean back might be a little heavy for such a light and airy top.

LOVE the cheery colors!

I used Jenny's half square triangle method for my pinwheel quilt, very fast and easy! I LOVE Jenny's tutorials!

Denim on the back would be so heavy and dark on such a bright sunny quilt. (I can't even stand wearing denim though, because it's so stiff and heavy, so I am a bit biased against it.)

I think a border would look awesome! I love borders because it's like a picture frame around a quilt.

As noted, jeans for the backing would be heavy. The denim may also continue to bleed when the quilt is washed. That would not look so good on a light colored quilt top.

love it, love the colors. I might borrow that denim backing idea. I do suggest multiple washings to soften and remove all bleeding.
