What materials did you use? The quilt was a BOM from Laura Nowns class, and the free motion quilting is from a class by Leah Day. I upcyled blue jeans and used flannel on the back of the quilt. I also used a heavier varigated thread in order to show more of the FMQ.

Beautiful! This just goes to show what can be done with creative ideas. This is something of which one would never tire. Enjoy!

Thank you, and I do know what you mean about the creative ideas. I have way too many in my thoughts, but I hope to accomplish a lot of them.

Fantastic idea! What size is your quilt & is it heavy? What a clever way to show off your FMQ!

The quilt was 60X80 inches, and the weight was almost 7 pounds when I shipped it. It's not real heavy to sleep under, and boy does it ever keep you warm. I slept under it for 1 night before I shipped it to my brother. I really had fun making it but more so with the fmq.

7 lbs! I'm sure it will be fantastic especially as the weather get cooler. Did you use flannel for backing?

Yes, Kriss I did use flannel backing on the quilt. Currently it is snowing in Illinois and my brother loves his quilt.

Flannel backing and denim top... did you use a leather needle for you machine or just a regular gauge? Oh, and this is a great idea too. I just dropped down two jean sizes and this idea might come in handy as soon as I get brave enough to get rid of my old, larger jeans.
