I made this to hold my circular needles and accouterments for knitting.  I pieced it, but I didn't TECHNICALLY quilt it as it is only the one layer.  I guess you could say I quilted it to the wall with thumb tacks though.  Wink

Very fun! 

What was your source for all those pockets?  Did you spend more time with the seam ripper than any other tool?

i had a bunch of pants left over from various roommates and my own hardworn pants that were eventually so rippy that they had no wearable function, so I just cut them out.  I didn't seam-rip anything, I just took scissors to the jeans about an inch away from the pocket itself to give plenty of room to sew it to the fabric squares and to give it a bit of a funky  thrown-together look.  The whole project probably took 3 hours of actual time, but I spread it out over a year (i like to pace myself, lol).

Funky, and a nice twist on the all-blue jeans version.
