The 4-patches were a result of power sewing with a maybe thought in mind. Well they became a different thought in the middle of the night. I hate when you wake up and your mind is in overdrive. So they became this look. I stitched two 4-patches together. My squares were n 2.5 inches I stitched into 4-patches. So the mini block is 4.5 inches. I sewed them together and made the multi-colored brick. Then I thought what do I have to alternate with them. I came up with the used jeans that were sitting there needing to be gone.
I cut the legs on the good part of the jeans into 4.5 X 8.5 inch bricks. This is to match the multi-colored brick made from the 4-patches. Not a hard task for this old mind at 4 am. I cut different colored jeans to the size bricks I needed and started out sewing. I have more multi-colored bricks sewn and need to cut more jeans up. My hand needed a break so I sewed and pressed for awhile and back to more jeans being whittled down. Use an repurpose is what is going on here today. Chris
