WIP Wednesday {3.7.2012}

Drunkard's Path Turtle Quilt

Here's my progress on the turtle prayer quilt.  I had a chance to take a picture outside.

Up close view on how I'm quilting the blocks. It takes about 13 minutes to quilt around the turtle and that was without distractions. I always have distractions, so it takes me longer than 13 minutes. I usually don't like to show up close pictures of my quilting since I'm not very good at it. However it may look, I like the way it's turning out! Mostly, I hope it brings peace and comfort for whom I'm making it.

This is a picture of jean legs that have been torn open into panels. I've been saving my childrens jeans for awhile to make them a denim quilt.  I'm following this tutorial.  Since I've been saving them for awhile I have varying sizes. The piles are divided into 5 inch, 6 inch and 7 inches widths.
