I think your quilt is awesome!  I made a ragged edge quilt, which is the warmest and my favorite, but I didn't even think of putting holes in them!  That is a fantastic idea, and looks great!  Good Job.

Great job!  I  can't believe this is your first quilt!  I love the denim on top and the soft on the other side.  And I LOVE the idea of cutting the recieving blankets, I have sooooo many. 

LOVE IT  (in fact "This ROCKS!!")

Your quilt is GREAT!!! I love it! I made a raggy quilt, but it pales in comparison to yours.

I like the straight stitches on the circles and think they look fine. I am sure it is hard to straight when sewing in a circle!

Can I ask what is the size of the finished block and what size seam allowance did you use? Oh, and the circle size....This is really great looking and I'm thinking I may give it a whirl with some of these jeans (5 tubs full).

Once again, I think it looks great and you did an awesome job for your first quilt. I love denim quilts in the winter. They are so heavy and warm!

My blocks were cut 6.5 in square with a 1/2 in seam allowance.  The circle, I just went through my plastic rubbermaid bowls and picked one I thought looked good.  Once I get more jeans again for the next quilt, I think I will experiment with different shapes as well.

thanks everyone for your compliments, they've really made my day! Grin

just a tip, I went to our a garage sale held by the teens at our church the last day and they were selling anything you could fit in a paper bag for $1.00. They had TONS of clothes left, so, I put every jean I could find in 3 bags and walked out with tons of jeans for $3! I also pick some intersting ones out at half price day at the thrift stores.

keep up the good work!

I always back my kiddie quilts in flannel, but what an idea to use receiving blankets! Awesome.
