Lol!  The photo does boggle the eyes a bit.  It's not so bad in person; just the little stripes make you dizzy. Smiley

Made this during my last week of work before I went on maternity leave in April.  It was inspired by a quilt I saw in a magazine.  The backing is a solid navy blue fleece.
Thanks for looking!

So cute!  The twisted ribbon will probably be her favorite!

Working with denim isn't so difficult, but cutting it - especially with scissors - can be difficult; sometimes the binding is hard to put on because of the weight. 

Someone posted a log cabin jean quilt in the 14 in 2014 thread, so now I think I'm going to have to make one like it. 

My grandma started making these in the 90s, and she's made one for each of her kids and grandkids - so about 17.  I'm happy to say jean quilts run in the family.

My mom went garage sale-ing back in the summer of 2000 and bought me a giant box of old jeans.  I've made at least 7 quilts out of that original stash which I've finally used up with this quilt.  The bad news is that both my mom and Grandma have a ton more that they want to use up...I think I'm going to sneak some into the trash when they're not looking. Smiley

I started this jean quilt during the summer Olympics of 2004.  The original was huge; probably king size, but I'm not sure.  Some time that year I did manage to get it tied, but, due to several issues, I decided to untie it and do it again.  Well, that didn't happen until last weekend, and I'm so relieved that it finally complete.

I agree, the color/fabric pattern just weren't right for this quilt pattern/design.  That's why I decided to just finished them off and not worry about whether I like them.  It's also been a good lesson for me - how to pick the right pattern with the right fabric print and fabric color.  I'm definitely not skilled in this, but I'm hoping to get better.  Also a lesson in machine quilting - since I don't care so much for the project, I won't be heart broken if the quilting is awful too.

I'm almost done hand quilting the 3rd of my 'ugly baby quilt' series.  Orginally, they were all supposed to be part of one quilt, but after I made the blocks (minus the one in the center of each baby quilt) I decided they just didn't work and began trying to salvage the project by turning it into something else.

'Ugly Baby Quilt' #2 is finished!  This is my 6th finished project this year - and my closet has never been cleaner Smiley  Actually, I really like how this one turned out (especially the quilting).  Any way, I've got one more "Ugly Baby Quilt" to finish and then I'll be rid of them.

Thanks for all the great feedback.  The disappointment with this quilt is from the original layout which used two other sets of blocks similar to the ones I've used here.  The entire quilt would have been more of a twin size, but it was just so wrong that I decided to break it up into three smaller quilts.  This was really my first time making a quilt using a pattern, and I didn't follow the directions regarding color choices. 

Anyway, it really isn't so bad as a small quilt; I really love the patterned fabric used in all three quilts and, fortunately, I still have some left to make into something else when I'm ready.

Also, the original plan would have been a quilt for my daughter who I was pregnant with at the time.  Now I'm pregnant with my second baby and I just need to finished up these left over projects.  I'm hand quilting one of the final two, and I'll machine quilt the third one - they are all the same design, just slightly different colors.

Thanks again for the feedback!

I've recycled this material a total of three times:  First, I used this fabric to cover a couch.  It was pretty awesome - a very large, very purple couch.  Then, when I decided I needed a new couch, I ripped all the fabric off and reused most of it as a table skirt to hide all of my crap in a very small apartment.  Finally, when I moved into a larger place I decided to make the skirt into a blanket -  which I started in about 2008 and have now finally finished!  Ta-Da!
