Cruella Deville Quilt

Posted by Nicole Daksiewicz on

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.
