My son Chad has been busy making denim quilts. He has collected piles of old jeans, and now he has three small quilt tops pieced.
He made the whole quilt look "wonky" by adding a tapered border. The center nine blocks were straight before he added the border. I love the look of this one.
This one has several pockets on it.
Here is Chad's daughter Micah putting an earlier quilt to good use.
Chad came to my longarm training with me and took the class, so as soon as I finish up the quilt that is loaded, he will quilt up these denim quilts. He chose a colored canvas for the backing which makes for a nice sturdy backing, perfect for a picnic and outdoor quilt.
I am so glad that Chad loves to quilt, and more important to make and create gifts for his family and his friends who are starting their families. My sewing has come full circle, and that makes me happy.
Thanks for reading, I appreciate it.
