What a fun Saturday I am having sewing !  I opened a drawer in a small dresser in my sewing room - it was so crammed, a bunch of stuff literally jumped out, including these very cute 4 patches (and another pile of them much bigger ) - I have no idea where these came from - someone must have given them to me - they have been in that drawer long enough !

 Let's make them a square in a square.................. hmm,  like that


and I have lots of denim - this is a denim "leg"... I got SEVEN boxes of denim legs FREE from Cone Mills in North Carolina when I lived there - many quilts have come from that... but there's a little (!) bit left.........................

 hmmm, alternating denim squares... I like that arrangement - a nice stury quilt, but not so heavy as an all-denim quilt.  a great picnic quilt or quilt for a man or a teen.  And the side seam makes a nice design detail.


I like it - it will be very homey and snuggly...  and let's see how I am doing at using up that denim....

rut roh - three large bins of denim, one small bin of denim... good thing denim lasts a long, long time!

Hope everyone else is enjoying the weekend.

Quilting at the cottage said...

I acquired denim legs and made place mats out of them with a little patch pocket for the napkins which I med in checked squares. Very cute and easy gifts to give at the time. I wasn't quilting then, just mucking about.

I do love the pants with the seams and how you cut them. They look just great with the blocks you've made.
