My Sewing Table Runneth Over

Here's my work area as I sewed the final seam.  Man, this quilt top is heavy!
Here are the results.
I had this idea I'd put the pieces together randomly.  Now I can see why Judy Martin puts about 100 different fabrics in a quilt.  You have to have that sort of selection if you want a random scrappy effect.  I eventually "scrapped" that idea, but still didn't distribute the squares and rectangles evenly, so I have ten rectangles left.  It currently measures 56 x 68".
I could tack on an upper and lower border - but that just looks like an afterthought (probably because it is!) Will have to think on this a bit...  :)

I love your sewing machine....isn't it great. Your quilt is awesome but heavy...great for these winter storms we are having.

The jean quilt looks great! They certainly are heavy - they make great picnic blankets to keep in the car.

I love the variety of colors. I've always wanted to do a jeans quilt but have never gotten around to it. Great job!
