21  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Re: Denim and corduroy quilt on: March 12, 2012 08:43:25 AM
Thanks so much. 

@rottenlittleboys  I used narrow wale corduroy, which wasn't that hard to work with.  I've quilted with wide wale cords and that was much more challenging:

It does tend to bias and I think it helps to embrace the chaos and just decide that it's quirky. Smiley

@MareMare   I ended up quilting it with blue thread and just quilting over and under the stitches on the denim.  It kinda, sorta disappeared into the denim but stood out nicely over the corduroy.  I also kept my lines meander-y which matched the embroidery on the denim and went with it.

Thanks for asking!

I started out by embroidering running stitches on denim patches.  



Eventually I ended up with a quilt made mostly of corduroy.  It's incredibly soft and comfy.

I really tried to capture the process on my blog and as I look back, I see I went on about it ad naseum but I'm thrilled with the finished product so it was worth the frustration I felt along the way.

Thanks for looking!

Hi,

Sorry, I didn't see your post till just now.  I think the year long wait in the garage took care of it.  There were some little bug tracks on the edge that were surface enough to come off when I sanded it.

Thanks for the question.

Just an update:  My postcard was delivered using the $1.05 stamp. That means I overspent quite a bit by going into the post office. Oh well, live and learn.

They were 1.95 each!  Weirdly, the one I sent to Germany was only $1.75.

I risked it all with the last one and sent it with an international $1.05 stamp.

My friend just sent a plywood postcard with a postcard stamp (.32 cents) and that arrived at it's destination.  I'll let you know if mine arrives.

Hi all,

I used a very small quilt that I made and turned it into nine postcards.



It was very fun and easy.  I just cut it into squares the size of the cardboard and sewed it all together.  I've already mailed them out and the recipients have been thrilled.  I go on and on at my blog but am so proud that I wanted to show them off here too.

There are too many categories this could fit into!  I picked paper because there is paper in this and it's for mailing and I thought paper artists would be more likely to care about mail art.

I upholstered my couch with used denim jeans a while ago and have had a couple of holes show up.  
Denim wears out whether your butt is on the inside or the outside of the pants, I learned.  Smiley
I patched the first hole with a denim patch but decided to darn the newest hole with embroidery floss.  I hope this is the right place to post.  It's not as fancy as the other work here but it is needlework.





I'm very happy with it and just hope it lasts a while.  I think I'll patch any more holes that show up this way and maybe in a few years the couch will be way more colorful.

I finally finished it!  A friend gave us a slice of an elm that he had to cut down.  I kept it sitting in the garage for over a year while it dried.  I had to knock the bark off which was pretty easy but sanding it down took a little more time.  



I coated it with several coats of Tung Oil.  Then added the casters to the bottom.



It was a pretty long process but I am thrilled to be able to put my feet up on it.



Play by play on my blog.

That is so awesome.  I'm a little pallet obsessed to but without the easy access.  When I do get pallet-ing, I will use you as my inspiration!
