Cruella Deville Quilt

Hi friends, So happy to have you stop by today on my day on the Denim Studio Tour by Art Gallery Fabrics! The quilt I am sharing kind of happened by accident, totally not what I was planning on making - but once I felt the fabrics I knew exactly what to do!

I first saw the denim line at Quilt Market this last year, and was seriously impressed with how light it was while still looking just like denim - I was smitten!

Quilting with denim in the past (click here for previous project) is a little tricky, the weights are all different and sewing through that bulk let alone quilting is quite a headache. This material is so perfect for quilting I wanted to share a project using the smallest pieces I could imagine - a fun improv quilt!

This quilt is composed of several very skinny - just under an inch wide strips, sewn together in a transition from light to dark starting with Snow from Art Gallery Fabrics Pure Elements line - working through some of the Solid Smooth Denims in The Denim Studio ending with Caviar, another Pure Elements solid.

I received my backing yesterday afternoon and upon looking at what I chose with the front of the quilt, I laughed....this quilt totally looks like Cruella Deville!

Not only is the front half black and half white - like Cruella's hair, but the backing material almost looks like a dalmatian dog print - it was perfect!!

The backing material I chose because I loved the black and white print, and am a huge fan of Katarina Roccella's line Avant Garde. The print I used is called Tentative Dot Ink.

I love how you can fold this quilt on the dark side or the light side for a totally different look.
