Not the last two weeks, but the weeks before have been spent keeping busy in little spaces of time at the sewing machine. This will be a strippy, scrappy quilt. Again, my goal is to not buy fabric for the quilt top if possible.
I find that a height of 8″ blocks really uses up the jeans quickly. They are much larger pieces than what I needed for the crazy quilt. My sister and mother gave me old jeans to use since my supply almost ran out. I’m humored to see the kids’ old jeans. They make fairly narrow strips if they are smaller than a size ten. When did they grow bigger?
