My 2012 Depression Quilt Top

This is my first quilt and I am so proud of myself! I used old jeans that don’t fit me anymore (cause I lost weight! yee-haw!) and I don’t have a good stash of fabric scraps yet so I had to improvise and buy old some fabric samples from Betty’s Fabric’s in Santa Maria. I’m calling it “My 2012 Depression Quilt” for a couple of reasons. #1, obviously because of our economy, but #2 because it reminds me of the quilts my Grandma and Great Grandma had from the Depression of the 1930’s and 1940’s.

    Congrats on your first quilt! I love that you used jeans and the way you named it. Good luck!
