I had so much inspiration, that it was difficult to choose one subject. I started with the idea of making a Blue Jeans Boro quilt. I was so intrigued by pieces I had seen on the Internet, but it didn’t work for me in the 16" x 16" size.
Another idea was to make a Flower Power Blue Jeans, a quilt from denim covered with blue appliqued flowers. I remember I had a Blue Jeans in the Seventies with flowers all over it.

mixed media - 16" square
‘It’s a blue nightfall, now I weep’ is made of hand dyed fabrics, pieces of batik, angel wire (that’s what it says on the package), gilding flakes, fabric paint and some hand dyed threads for the hand stitching. It’s machine quilted in straight lines.
I took pictures of the process. All about that is on my blog.
Thanks to Beverly for a theme that held so many options in it and kept us busy!
