You're welcome

Here's a test swatch for the OCD quilt.  I tried hand quilting it.  I think if I do the whole blanket this way, I'll make the stitches further apart so that I can finish in this decade.  The backing is a  heavy cotton from IKEA.  I was going to use it for chair covers since but I haven't even begun to consider working on that project, this one wins.  I do have the chairs, though.  But I am NOT a hoarder (spoken like a true hoarder)!
My big worry is that the rectangles will fall off or fray in the wash so I'm going to throw this one through a cycle and see what happens.  If they fall off I may go through and zig zag them on with a blue thread.  That promises to be a colossal pain because I've already sewn all the squares together.

 I used jean top stitching thread because I like the weight of it for this but I don't like the color so I'll be using a different thread if I hand stitch it.
Getting there...

Oh.  I found this pair of acid washed, pleated front Bill Blass jeans at Dig N Save and cut them up for a border.  They will never grace anyone's ass again.                                                                                                        You're Welcome.

Ha! I've been wanting to start lap quilts and have been procrastinating ... I think this is inspiring me to just DO them! :)
