My significant other asked that I create a quilt for him from some of his old jeans. So I had to find a simple pattern that man enough and that I could use denim. Two of my friends (one male the other female) suggested Log Cabin and Yellow Brick Road, as my boyfriend is a brick mason. So I thought I would make the center out of Log Cabin and surround them with Yellow Brick Road. For a first attempt, I have to admit I am proud of how they turned out; they are not near the quality I have seen in other quilts here. But I would love any suggestions, tips, or pointers the "pros" are willing to offer someone like me. Thanks for looking.
