    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    LOVE IT! I have two large boxes of denim just waiting for me to do something with. It is on my bucket list. Maybe next year. The grandkids want to build a tree house and I plan on making some kind of utility quilt for them to use in the "cabin". I have the instructions for the quilt but don't remember if it said anything about the outer edges. How did you do them?

    see how it looks like a flower peddle will I just cut the peddle and sewed it to the edges

    ​That is my favourite pattern for a denim quilt but soooo much work. It looks great!

    Wonderful heavy duty quilt. I am sure it will be as warm as it is pretty.
