Awesome! Are you a scientist perchance? I only ask because I am and I think it is flipping fantastic how much your pattern looks like gene sequencing output from some programs I've seen. =) Way to go!
 

Aw, thank you!  I'm not a scientist, but I do LOVE science!  I have MANY times tossed around the idea of making a human genome quilt. 

You're welcome. I'm glad I'm not the only one who has pondered making a genome quilt! Cheesy

I was on my way to make a quilt just like this but I got as far as cutting out all the denim squares and stopped. What size needle and thread did you use, by chance?

Wow!  This looks fantastic, and I bet it has a nice weight to it, that makes it extra warm and snuggly.  Any tips for working with such a heavy fabric?

Its just gorgeous, nice job!

fabulous quilt - love the colours, the red gives it a real 'zing' and ~I am just SO glad you got it done in time for your dad - I usually procrastinate too much and and then regret so you have added wowness for not doing what I do.

Hope this quilt is enjoyed for many years to come, and by many generations. (hugs)

KEEP GOING!  Denim is actually really great to work with.  I actually didn't do anything fussy... used the needle that was in my machine at the time, which is just a standard 90/14, and a regular cotton-wrapped polyester thread.  I really didn't have any troubles!

Thanks so much!  I love the weight of it... it's very heavy and cozy.  To be honest, I didn't have any trouble working with the denim at all... in fact, I think I preferred it to working with regular quilting cottons.  Because of its sturdiness, it seems less prone to stretching and such, although you still have to pin it and cut it on grain to ensure success in that department.  I did tie it instead of trying to push it through my machine, though... much less painful.
