Covey is a craft addict!!
She worked so hard in October and November to finish the afghan for her mom for Christmas. Here is a picture of it. It was a bunch of little blocks all hooked together. Each block took about 40 minutes. This was out of a book called 7 day afghans. UGH!! 7 days around the clock maybe!! Covey's mom really liked it though so the labor was worth it.
So as not to be unequal, Covey decided to tackle a quilt for her mother in law next. Sherry used to work at Wrangler jeans until the plant closed. She had a whole box full of jean pant legs that she wanted made into a quilt. I have to say, I think my sewing machine had the biggest problem with this one. 8 layers of jeans is a lot for a little home machine to tackle. It threatened to go on strike several times! The other problem was keeping the quilt on the sewing table. It weighed about 30 pounds and kept sliding off. I think my left bicep is about twice the size of my right from trying to hold it up there. Needless to say the efforts were well worth it. My mother in law loved the quilt and I was able to get the huge box of pant legs out of my house. Here is front of the quilt. The back is just a mismatched patchwork of jean squares . . . nothing worth showing.
