Rough Around the Edges

What to do when you have a pile of old jeans and hand printed fabrics and scraps of batting lying around? Cut them all up into squares and circles, lay them out in a pleasing pattern, sew the circles together, add a wavy line of quilting and then throw the completed rug in the washer and dryer to make it even more faded and ragged.

These pictures were taken before I washed it.

These were taken this morning. We love using this new quilt as a rug in front of the couch. It's hard to say whether we prefer the colourful side or the denim side with all its texture and variations in blue.

The wavy quilting shows up best on the back. It looks like circles have been sewn around each square.
