    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!

    Gorgeous quilt! I did not realize it would be so heavy. I'm making one for me and my dog's bed .... something durable!
    Make it a scrappy happy day!

    That is such a pretty quilt done in denim. I cannot imagine how much work in it. You did a great job.

    Looks great! If you get the urge to make another, I suggest you try the Olfa Circle Cutter. Last time I used mine, I cut 40 in less than 10 minutes. It's great!
