Raggy Jeans Rug

Quilt in a Day 13th October 2010

Twelve squares of dark denim …. cut from near new jeans …. backed with a cream fabric which formerly backed a bedspread.

Pieced together before breakfast …. my morning exercise was walking from the spare bedroom carrying two blocks correctly aligned to the sewing room down the passage, stitching, then returning for the next piece! This was before daylight, so working, or walking, outside was not an option at that time.  After the event realised I had stitched within a hairsbreadth of a stud ….. an extra cup of heart starter was required with the bowl of muesli!

Life returned to more normal activities for the morning, but still managed to get the snipping of seam allowances done by lunchtime, after thinking it was done soon after breakfast, but finding a few seams waiting for the snips just before I was going to put it in the machine.

Finished size 36 x 45 inches
