Well, it started out as a rag quilt but was supposed to have a design and a be bigger. My youngest has autism and likes to use cut and sewn blocks as toilet paper (ya he is fun and my plumber LOVES him lol) and so what I started with and ended with was smaller lol
This was raffled off at my son's school on March 1 to raise money for their school trip. They raised about $1000 and the woman who won was thrilled. Smiley
Took me about 4 hours to cut it and 3 to sew it all together (Cutting fabric always freaks me out a little lol) And it frayed beautifully in the washing machine!!!! Smiley









Some line up issues on the plain side but other than that I was pretty happy with it and am working on my next one! Smiley

Great job!  I like denim quilts and yours looks warm and cuddly.

It looks great and denim quilts get better every time they get washed.

Thank you Smiley I loved making it.
Sewing, ironing, measuring... it totally relaxes me after a stressful day! The cutting freaks me out a bit but I am getting better lol
