This is the layout for the next recycled jeans and flannel and corduroy scraps quilt. There are scraps from 3 flannel shirts that I made about 15 years ago. The corduroy scraps are from clothes for my granddaughters. This quilt is all about recycling instead of dumping in a landfill. I know people who throw away big chunks of fabric. I can't do it. I love the flannel and denim together. I was a farm girl with 2 brothers. That is what we wore as children. Actually it's still my favorite wardrobe around the house in the winter.
Since I had trouble with the last quilt like this, I decided to take time to open the seams and zig zag over them with gray thread before I sew the cross seams. I will also open and zig zag over the cross seams. This should make it easier to quilt.
It seems that almost everyone thought the quilt yesterday should have 3 borders. That is probably what I will do but I'll hang it all on a design wall so I can double check and make sure I like my choices of fabric.
