12) A quilt like the Gee's Bend quilts

 I made this quilt after reading about the quilts of Gees Bend. It is full of old blue jeans and my kids clothing and even some raw silk that I dyed green.

 I tied it with wool yarn that would felt after washing...I hate tying quilts. I felt like my back was going to break in half. I won't do it again unless I have to.

 The back is fun. I drew on muslin with some fabric oil paints. This quilt weighs about 6 tons. Must be all the denim.
