The Denim Quilt Continues

When you have an idea stuck in your head, what do you do?  I asked myself that question a lot lately.  It's clear to me that when this happened, I just have to try out the idea and see what the result will be.  That's what is going on with this denim quilt.  

I had this idea in my head about a month ago but I ignored it.  I made the first block as you can see it here and thought that by making more blocks, the pieces will fall into place like solving a jigsaw puzzle which I love to do.   I made more blocks but nothing seems to go well together and the nagging feeling got louder.  Then I said to myself, 'this is silly', and gave up on making more blocks to work with the first block.  I'll use those blocks for other Denim quilt later.  Instead, I start making the blocks based on the original idea I had.  Here are the pieces. 


Now, I feel that we're really going somewhere.  I'll continue to work on this until I get the final layout that I like.

What are you working on this week?  Are you liking it so far?  Are you having fun working on it?  

Thanks for visiting and may the Quilting fairy bless you with a great and fun sewing time.....

  1. Good luck on and have fun with creating this one! Have you sketched anything out or is it all floating around up there in your mind? (Not that I ever sketch anything--I rarely create my own stuff at all!)

  2. Like any good artist, you just know when it's "right." Continue to go with your gut and I'm sure this will turn out wonderfully! Thanks for sharing on my weekly show and tell, Wednesday Wait Loss.

  3. Hi Margo, I'm glad that these denim blocks are going better. Best of luck and thanks for linking up to Free Motion Mavericks. Have a great weekend.

  4. Interesting new direction! The firts idea is often the best to follow, and working on a projet you like makes a great difference. I can't wait to see where you will head with this one!
    Thank you for sharing, and linking up!


Thanks for visiting my blog and taking the time to comment. I enjoy reading each and every one and will respond with an email. If you don't get an email response, it's probably because you're a "no reply blogger" and I have no way to contact you! If you don't hear from me, check back at the original blog post for my reply.
