this is the best use of denim l\ve seen so far. i love using re-claimed fabrics and l couldn't think of what to do with it as as you do l also like to work with fabric paints. your quilt is very inspirational, thankyou for sharing.

Thank you! What I didn't put in the instructions is that I use acrylic paints on fabric. Once they set, they're washable, fade proof...I make market bags out of recycled painted white sheets and vintage tablecloths. And I also make linen dishtowels out of old tablecloths. Don't get me started on the inspiration I find in a Thrift store...

totally cool, love your quilt. what size did you cut your squares? I too have lots of jeans and odd and ends fabric that are sittin in a tote waiting to be used.

The squares were about 6 X 6 before I sewed them. If you can see it close up, I painted on the denim squares, with acrylic. This quilt has now been washed 4 or 5 times, and the paint never fades.
