Valerie from sewcranky again. Despite being mostly KO'd by this miserable head cold I've got, I managed to finish the lap quilt for my BFF Jenn. She had gifted me with a bunch of old pairs of jeans. I used the back pockets to make a neat 12 gore skirt, but I had all this leftover denim that I didn't want to toss, so I thought I'd incorporate some of it into a quilt for her! I cut 2"strips out of the denim and stitched it all together. I combined the 18.5" denim panel with a 48.5"x 30" panel that I'd made from irregular pieces of green batik and brown quilting cotton. I used minky to back it all. The most fun part was the irregular free-motion quilting that I did on the green/brown part of the quilt. I think it gave it the more organic appearance that I was hoping for. Totally snuggly.
