Quilt ~ In Progress

The inspiration:

Denim Blanket from MintBasil

The embroidery (project in progress):

Let's all remember here that I was inspired by the above quilt (as well as others) but have no intentions to try to copy it.....
Following are a few quilt squares that I have been making. My idea is to hand embroider a few, machine sew most of them and sew them together with the edges out for the frayed look. I am sewing together two denim squares, 7" x 7", with no batting. My intent is that the back denim will serve as the batting material (ever held a denim quilt? They're heavy) and when it's all done, I will use a cute cotton sheet, hopefully vintage and floral,  for a solid backing. We'll see how it goes.....
