I made this for a friends sons second birthday. It is about 36x50 inches. Good for a crib or tea party (I have a daughter). The background is made up of several well worn pairs of jeans and a demin shirt. It is so soft, but has a really nice weight to it. I want to make a denim quilt for myself one day. I wanted to put something in the pocket like a magnetic lasso game with a little stuffed horse, but I ran out of time.

There are horse shoes in the yellow denim thread throughout the background

I love the letters, the took a while to do. I was so excited when I found the fabric

Nice Job. Denim is not an easy fabric to work with. This looks so much nicer than anything I have ever tried to make out of old jeans.

This is great!  I love things that repurpose old clothing and stuff.  It looks fantastic, and the gold quilting is a great touch.

Very nice!  I absolutely love that quilt!  The backing fabric matches the theme of the front so nicely!  Well done!

I love the little details like the embroidered H on his belt and the horseshoes!  Great job!
