I say ugly because I don't think there is a single "square" part in it- I'll admit to just winging it, but I also wanted something that I wouldn't get upset about if it got grass stains on, if the dog chewed it, etc.  It is meant to be a camping/ outdoor quilt.

The jeans were recycled from jeans that were no longer wearable (tears, holes, etc.).  The fleece is a faux tie-dye that I found in my moms stash.

This is the most fabulous jeans quilt I've ever seen!  I love the colors and pattern you used.  Well done!

I think it looks pretty sweet.  I have cut up jeans and maybe, just maybe, this will inspire me to do something with them.

Oooh...
See, I probably would get upset if it got grass stains on it or if the dog chewed it if that were my blanket!

I have lots of old jeans waiting for a project.  I think I just found one!  Great job and BTW I like the 'nothing is square' part of it.
