    Absolutely incredible. I had cut all the circles..made one placemat and realized the weight, time and thread.....and that I would not be sending it to my son in Hawaii. So my quilting group got the circles...You have done a beautiful job.....

    Wow.....where did you get pattern? Size of circle? Size of insert? From pic it looks like the stitch you used to nail everything down was not just a straight stitch...was it? Or what was it....I have a shopping bag full of jeans! just crying to be repurposed???this could be the answer......

    Good idea for a denim quilt. Looks like a lot of work!

    Wow, that is the nicest jean quilt that I have seen. I would like to make one but I don't know if I will ever get enough pairs of jeans to make it.

    Wow! Beautiful. I made a twin sized denim rag quilt for my daughter... first quilt I made. It is super heavy, and the quilt she asks for when winter come around. I'm surprised yours is only 11 pounds. When I made mine, I was just starting, and way too impatient to collect jeans, I bought yardage of assorted denim... I had no pattern, and no idea how much to buy, I think I ended up buying 10 yards of denim. I'll have the rest of it until the day I die, I'm sure.

    This quilt was always on my bucket list. Finished the same quilt last month and it looks spectacular. But, I find it doesn't drape well and is cumbersome -- the denim doesn't give. One night when it was chilly I spread it across my bed. Although I was toasty warm, I couldn't move from side to side with ease. May not weigh much in poundage, but it's bulky. My grandchildren admired it, but I didn't give it to anyone. Put a lot of work in this quilt, and did heavy duty quilting on my Janome, now I'm not sure what to do with it.

    It turned out beautiful...I made one two years ago for my girlfriend. I used jeans I bought at the thrift stores and I bought some dark blue denim and used it for the centers...She loved it..

    Scrappy Happy, thank you so very much for sharing this wonderful quilt. Sometimes we do simple things that have great meaning and importance for someone else. You just did. I think you should know about your unwitting gift.

    I have been looking at huge bags of cut and uncut jeans that my late quilting buddy was saving for a denim quilt: hers, her sons' and her sons' friends. In the last year another bag with ours: mine, my children's, and my husband's joined the pile. She willed me her entire craft and sewing room, machines included, with instructions to make sure it got to all ages and skill levels of sewers. It's taken a year but I j-u-s-t got almost all of it to new homes.


    Pat's stash and machines have found new homes. Your wonderful quilt came at EXACTLY the right time. I am going to cut and make a denim quilt for myself and feel comforted. It wouldn't have happened without you. Drat, she's right again. I can see her smirking.

    You did a simple thing that made a great deal of difference. I thought you ought to know about it.

    Thank you.

    From Another Pat

    GREAT QUILT, LIKE YOUR PATTERN, I'm collecting used jeans from the kids (sons,grandson any one that has some they want to get out of their closet. Have made #'s of these before, in fact one jean quilt is in Afghanistan doing a tour
    with a grandson in the US Army.
    This should be a test for it, since the quilt is about 8 years old already.
    Freedom to speak is a gift ;please don't take it from us..

    What a great quilt and a nice way to recycle jeans. My fingers hurt just thinking about all the hand cuts you did!

    I'm in the process of making one now. I have to cut my fabrics for the centers. Sure hope mine looks as good as yours. It is beautiful and sure worth the time you put into it. Good Job.
