Finish # 3 of 2012 : Hand quilted Denim Quilt

This is the second post of today! Thats because I finished 2 quilts this week. I'll be posting 4 of the ABC pending posts tomorrow... Here is a link to the other quilt I made this week...

Hand Quilted Denim Quilt...



I have always loved the pairing of denim and red. So when I though of making a whole cloth quilt... Denim and Red were my first choices.

This quilt had me do a lot of "firsts"

It is my FIRST hand quilted quilt.

This is the first time I have tried to make a two sided binding. And I am making it again for sure...

It is also the first time I attached my binding strips on bias. I always did them straight, but I knew the denim would bulk up the edges too much. So HAD TO sew them together on the bias.

Here's my beauty...




The denim side...


Here's a look at both the sides together...


I just love the way these two fabrics work with each other!


Do you like the red side...


Or the Denim side?


Did you see that awesome binding???

Want to know how I made it? 
I'll write a tute someday...

Cheers!!!
