Made From Old Denim Shirts and Dresses

If you follow my blog, you have seen this quilt before. I made it from denim shirts and dresses and a pair of old plaid shorts.

I am doing a test posting today from my tablet, instead of my computer.  So far so good. Of course, it takes longer to type. I haven't figured out all the options yet.

I wanted to share about some of my "easy to make and sew" patterns before Christmas, if you are looking for handmade gifts.

And you probably have some old denim clothes you can cut up and turn into a gift.

This pattern is a PDF Downloadable Pattern available for only $1.00 on  Denim Quilt Block

You will find more than 20 PDF Downloadable patterns in my Pattern Store at Most of them are easy to sew patterns.

I used the scraps from my quilt to make this table topper. I use it as a large place mat! 

Enjoy your day!


Just a note:   I had to go to my computer to add the tags and to tweek it a bit! But I think posting from my tablet will work!

Getting Up Close to My Quilting - Wiggle Line Quilting

Wiggle Line Quilting is one of my favorite free style quilting choices.

It gives the quilt a very modern look versus a straight line quilting. 

The Wiggle Line softens the straight lines of the quilt.

My customers bring me the COOLEST quilts to quilt!

Enjoy your day!

My Stick Family Quilt

My Grandson is 2 1/2 years old and he loves to draw.  They roll out a big white paper and they all sit on the floor and color or paint on it.  When we skype with them he narrates what he is drawing.  The other day he drew a skateboard and then took off his shoes and slid on the paper like he was a skateboarder falling down.  He said they go like this.... 

On Sunday, when the challenge was announced that we were to be inspired by children's artwork, I knew I had to use white fabric with the fabric markers and create a family of stick people.  I only drew bodies and arms and legs with a head and only eyes and a big smile.  No hair, no hands, no skirts or pants, that way any of the people can me anyone as my grandson names them... This is Mama and Dada and this is Grandmama and Baba and Oma and Opa and this is Uncle B and Uncle Joris..... I did add 2 dogs as we needed to include our Toby and my grand-dogger Rogue.

It's reversible!

Here's all the photos to show you "Step by Step" how I made my "Stick Family" quilted table runner.

I will be linking up for Project Quilting over a Persimon Dreams Blog for this week's challenge.

You will be amazed at all the quilts that are created in only one week, that are inspired by children's artwork!

Hop over and check out all the quilts!

Enjoy your evening!
