Finished Denim Quilt!

Hi! How are ya? Miss me?

Sorry. My folks were in town and when they are here I try to spend as much time with them as possible.

I finished the Denim Quilt and attached it to the back of the Ugly Quilt and somehow they are both just absolutely beautiful together. It's unreal.

Here it is, all finished.

As you can see, I added a few details of my own; I patched some of the holes in the jeans with some scraps and was even able to fussy cut out one of the back pockets to add into the overall pattern. I also added the pink half-square triangle border.  It was originally on the ugly quilt:

But I wanted the the quilt top to be larger, so I added it to the denim side and I think it's a pretty addition.

I could have spent maybe 10 more minutes lining up the borders so all the triangles kind of matched at the corners but....let's face it, I'm lazy. 

so lazy

I'm not sure what kind of witchcraft occurred, but somehow the back doesn't look so bad anymore.

If you would like to make this denim quilt, remember you can get the pattern from Alicia over at Lucy's Quilts

This quilt was close to 10 years old and I'm glad to have it out of my laundry basket of WIPs!! I'm already looking forward to my next project!

Happy Sewing!
