Today was the first day of the London Friendship Quilters' Guild "Harvest of Quilts" show. I volunteered in the morning at the raffle table with Christine. At lunch time, we went out for lunch with the group involved in the Gee's Bend Challenge and everyone got to show off their projects. Others in the restaurant were also admiring our handiwork!
For most of us, this project took us way outside our normal comfort zones.
My quilt was made mostly of denim and corduroy leftover from shortening jeans and cords. The pocket is from an old pair of jeans that my daughter wore at one time.
The binding was made by wrapping the backing fabric around to the front of the quilt and sewing it down. The corners were not mitered!
Some of these fabrics were used to make boxer shorts for this quilter's sons!
This was a fun challenge and we have decided explore the possibility of doing another challenge soon!
The bonus of this project was getting to see everyone again and going out for lunch. It was a great opportunity to get caught up with the latest news!
