I had my quilt top done before the third quarter was over. During the last quarter I might get the next one's layout done.
Some think I am a little crazy for all the denim quilts I make. I blame my problem on my sister. She got me started when we made graduation quilts for our 2001 high school grads. I was hooked right away.
I have tweaked the pattern a little. It originated as a Kaffe Fassett pattern pictured on the front of his Glorious Patchwork book. I am not sure who adapted it for denim with black strips but I just love the look.
I have made numerous quilts using this pattern, including a king size, queen size, extra long twin and 4 handbell table covers. I have used the pattern with other fabrics besides denim and they turn out well but my favorite is plain blue denims from a wide variety of old jeans. I started out tying the quilts but I have now perfected a method for machine quilting the lap quilts using my Pfaff on my sewing table. I have given about 40 to foster kids in our county for their high school graduation, several have been baby quilts, 2 went with the youth from our church to Mexico to give to the two families they helped build homes for, and on and on and on.
I think it probably could be considered an addiction but I don't think they have rehab for this addiction.
