    I graduated to piece blocks for DGSs...

    For Christmas acouple of yrs ago, I decided to make quilts. But only managed to do the DGSs which was 4 quilts.
    SO I decided I would do denim, and since I was given little jeans to mend or use for mending from 3 little boys, I have alot of jeans. One was made using all those little squares (3 1/2") from the 3 little DGSs jeans. A 2nd one was made using grandpa and Dads jeans using 6" patches. The other two were made using panels, 1 doing a school theme and the other was Iowa Hawkeyes... But all four were still hand tyed... DH helped with the tying. And since I do all my sewing downstairs (I get the whole 1800 SQ FT). I can lay quilts out on the floor to work on them... DH and myself have back trouble, so bending over is limited. Thanks for looking.

    They looked loved already. Bless your husband's heart for being down on his knees helping you tie they off. Adorable.
