WIP Wednesday...

Here are a few more pics of my current quilt project...  




 (This picture links back to the original post on this quilt)


I have continued to work on this project.  
I'm now working on the second of four quarters.  
Here are some process shots:
 Ironing open the seams as I go helps a lot when it comes to 
adding the batiks...

 
Here's the Personality Shot!!

The SEAMS seem to add a LOT of personality to this quilt!
 Be sure to cut open the seams on the jeans before drawing you circles... I didn't discover this until I was cutting the 5th pair of jeans... 


 Here the next quarter is put together in rows... 
I found that working in row groups of 2 or 3 are the easiest to move around on my sewing machine...

 Then it's deciding where to place the batiks...
 I was trying to not repeat the same batik across or up and down...
Close, but there are a couple of repeats...
I think I'm pretty happy with the layout so far...
Not sure how it will be to attach the two quarters together... 
Let you know soon!! 

Have a wonderful week! For lots of fun and creative quilting check out

Okay, now that is beautiful!

(and I can't see the repeats, so just don't mention them, and nobody else will either)

Rie, I just LOVE how this is turning out! I love the mottled look of the mixed denim background with all the brights on top. VERY COOL indeed! You sew rock girl!
