A Co-workers little boy passed away after a horrible disease.  To raise money people at work all donated a pair of blue jeans and I made this quilt.  It is a queen size and has 34 different pairs of blue jeans on  it (though it takes 17 to make one and I still have a trunk full of blue jeans).. I am happy to say that it raised 650.00

Thats awesome!  I bet it was more difficult working with denim.
