    Happy Stitching!
    Good ideas! Thanks Rhonda.

    Thanks everyone! It wasn't hard to sew as I have a Singer Heavy Duty machine.

    TMP... I don't think I would add more seams though. I thought about a disappearing 9 patch but that would be hard I think.

    Claire...I love the picnic blanket idea. Maybe for the next one. I will save more old jeans. I'm wondering if it might be too hesvy for grocery bags. This sack is quite heavy empty!

    I like it a lot! I think that is a very clever use of the denim . I can imagine it was hard to sew.

    I think thats a clever idea. I may hunt down jeans Around here and see if I could make shopping bags.

    Denim should make good reusable grocery bags or a beach/picnic quilt.

    started a topic I finally used my denim 9 patches!

    I finally used my denim 9 patches!

    This demin has been in my posession for up to 25+ years. They were jeans that I could no longer fit into when I lost weight. I kept them amd cut them into squares, planned a quilt and organized them, labeled them and put them with layout instructions in zip baggies for sewing another time. I even titled the quilt! Tucked away they never saw the light of day for all these years other than the occasional...oh yeah...I should get to that!! Lol

    This summer I got as far as sewing them into 9 patches. After the baby quilt I was going to make them disappear. I couldn't figure out how to make it grow. I didn't have more denim. I was determined and then got mesmerized by Moda! Haha. So...then back into the drawer it went. No quilt was made...again.

    Well...I did make something with half of it. A big gift sack for hubby's birthdays (he has always had a big Christmas sack at his request). At least it's getting some use soon. His birthday is next week. I am determined to use it all. I'll think of something for the rest...eventually lol.

    It's mostly blues but really bad lighting. I wanted to machine applique, but by mistake I bought the wrong Heat and Bond. I still like it. I think he will too
