So I finally finished my very first quilt! It was my dads Christmas present but I wasn't able to finish it by Christmas so I had to wrap it halfway done then finish it for him before I came back to school. It's made out of old pairs of blue jeans and some jean fabric I had to buy because I ran out of pairs of jeans to cut up. The backing is a full sized sheet and I quilted it on my machine. I absolutely LOVE the finished product and so does my dad. He said that my Granny Smith would be so proud of me.

That is beautiful, love it. You did such a great job on the back, I always seem to have a big wrinkle. Did you use any batting?

Seen a lot of denim quilts, but this one is the best looking one so far. Smiley

It looks like you thought it out as a quilt, and not as jeans sewn together. If that makes sense? lol

I like how you incorporated the pockets into the design.  The different shades of blue jeans makes for a great look. Nice job!

A beautiful quilt! Your quilting lines on the back look so neat and tidy--mine have all turned out wiggly! :-) Great work. Thanks for sharing.

Great job for anytime, but especially your first quilt!  I like the pockets and bits that say, "Yes, I used to be a pair of pants."
