Denim Flow is a new piece from Hollis Chatelain and is example of the kind of quilt you'll see her working on in Episode 1207: Out of Africa: From Life Experience to Incredible Quilts. 

It is 42" x 34" and is machine appliqued and quilted.  Hollis used blue jean fabrics, hand-dye painted fabrics, poly-cotton batting, and polyester threads.

Artist Statement:

Denim Flow is the beginning of a new path for me.  My love of denim led me into a new way of making quilts. This technique of combining blue jeans and hand-dyed fabrics creates a soft sculptured impression.  When I finished this piece it seemed to resemble a topography map.
