Jean Quilt #2


59" x 71"
My second jean quilt is all finsihed! And it is the last of the tops on the rail for me to quilt. I am officially all caught up on everything! Haven't had the rail clear for quite a while. I even got all the scraps cut and put away and my sewing room is clean. Pat me on the back, would ya!

This one seemed harder than the last one. I didn't want to pull anything too hard because of the minky I used on the back and I think I may have allowed for a little puffiness to sneak into the quilt. Maybe I should go back and give the sashing a wave to tack it down. Do you think I'd end up with some puckers if I did that?


This quilt is different than the last one because it only had 1 kind of block and 1" sashing instead of 1/2" sashing. I think I like the smaller sashing better and the other quilt pattern too. If you're wondering what I'm talking about you can see it here.

I picked a couple different quilting designs this time, but I kept the water meander and the X's. I was working to make the ribbon's smaller and uniform, but you really have to focus. It isn't easy when people keep walking in the room while I'm quilting.


This quilt is joining the other on my couch for a while. It's nice that the kids like them though. Helps me to want to make 6 more of them! They are great for practicing different designs, but it's going to be a while until I break out the old jeans again.
