I Wrapped Up in My Favorite Quilt...

Gabby 

... and Toby

for a photo shoot for the Pets on Quilts Show.



I made this raggie denim shirt quilt 10 years ago when I first started long arm quilting.  Many of you have seen it, because I have shared it here. 



I cut up denim shirts, plaid cotton shirts, flannel scraps, and denim dresses to create this quilt.  



I backed my quilt with flannel fabric and used a poly batting to make it a little lighter than if I had used a cotton batting.





I was just learning to free style quilt.  I chose a variegated thread with blends of blues. I really had fun practicing loops and whimsical flowers. 





In the beginning, I had a hard time hitting the center points of the flowers, thus resulting in the uneven flowers that still look great today - 10 years later.







I did not snip this quilt to fray.  I let it fray naturally.

 
It is my favorite quilt of all the quilts I have ever made.  It is soft and warm, yet light weight, because of the poly batting and use of the denim shirts.



In the winter, I cuddle up as I am blogging. Sometimes I share it with Gabby and Toby.  They love it too!

I also enjoy my new grand baby and I will be sharing some baby photos soon. Remember, I made four quilts for him and tons of baby burp cloths. I took photos of them being put to good use. We had a wonderful trip to the Netherlands and I am finally recovering from the jet lag! I spent a lot of time in the rocking chair just holding the baby.

Helloooo ~ Let me introduce myself, I am Sweet William The Scot, and I am taking the tour of the quilts. I am more of a dog blogger, but I have made three quilts in my lifetime. We all have our favorite one. I think I am from the washed denim generation and your quilt hits a beat with me.
