Distracted by the denim

Today I had planned to start work on my next quilt, but I've been sidetracked.  I went looking for something over the weekend and had to shift the bag with all my denim in.  It looked like this:

So I have been sorting it out, and getting a bit more work done on the denim piece at the same time.  I've just been laying it out on the floor, not sewing (didn't want to distract myself from the job in hand). 

I liked it a lot at this point - and nearly stopped there, but the same old need for it to be functional kicked in so I kept going.

I've ended up with this, which is nearly big enough (it's be about 55" square).

and this - a lovely tidy bag, and considerably less full than when I started.  A good morning all round.

That's quite a denim stash, interesting arrangement.

This is growing beautifully and yes what a stash of denim!

I hopped across from Stash Bee as I read that you are from the Midlands. I was born on the borders of Warwickshire, Leicestershire and Northamptonshire - three counties, like you. I was just back there a week or so ago. Perhaps we could have met for a cuppa!
I love what you are doing with denim. My thing for a while was shirts, but after two quilts, two cushions and two pouches, I gave the remaining fabric to a friend to play with.
