Q&A with cindybee

SandraAndJames asked:
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.
cindybee answered:
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.
