I made yet another denim quilt.  This one is 44 X 44, which was a mistake.  I meant for it to be 40 X 40 and use it for a rug but I measured wrong.  So I gave it to my son, who said it was the perfect size for a super power, power up blanket, duh.  Smiley

I machine sewed small squares onto bigger squares which was oddly satisfying.  The bigger squares are machine pieced together.  

The backing is a remnant from IKEA.

It's hand quilted together, the quilting pattern was improvised squares and rectangles.

I think it is neat. I love denim. I was wanting to make another one I may try that.

It is just so great! Like art from Paul Klee. And you just say: "...I machine sewed small squares onto bigger squares..." When I do something like that, I don't get such a marvelous result. It rocks.

Beautiful!  This is like the Japanese "boro" (rags) bed covers.  They use every bit of cloth and patch the patches.

My favorite denim quilt I have seen out there.  It will really be neat when it is washed.
