    I started a denim quilt for DH and here are a couple blocks so far. The change pocket is from DH's jeans. Will also be using regular pockets and some blocks of course won't have pockets. Hope you can see the pictures OK, denim doesn't photograph quite as clearly as color fabric.

    Love these!!! I'll be watching too, as I have a ton of denim cut up from jeans, old skirts, shirts, etc. How are you planning to quilt? Are you paper piecing or are you using a foundation piece? Do you know yet what you'll use on the back?

    I put these 2 blocks together the same way you would do a crumb block, only a lot bigger. Am also working on a crumb quilt so Iíve got crumbs on the brain. I donít usually like to work on 2 projects at once Ė but I am :-P Iím going to make it into a rag quilt.

    Thank you everyone for your kind comments!

    Iím using denim from DHís jeans, my Dadís (who passed away in 07), friends and some I picked up on craigs list & Hospice thrift store. Some of the jeans from Craigs list have stains (the lady through them in) and Iím cutting around the stains. Some of the stains are barely noticeable but canít use them for DHís quilt. So Iím setting them aside and will make doggie denim quilts from them.

    I think I'll be 'marking' the blocks that have DH's and Dad's jeans by adding a button or something ... I'm open to suggestions anyone might have about this.
