    Is that you in your avatar? When I first saw it I thought it might be your favorite rock band (well if your in it, it probably is anyway)
    LoL. You were right the first time...the avatar is of my favorite band, Kittie. And no, I do not play in this band. The one playing the Flying V guitar up front is Morgan Lander and the one playing the drums is her sister, Mercedes.

    My friend (who was pregnat at the time when I started making this quilt) had a lot of jeans that either weren't going to fit her anymore or ones she didn't like so she gave them to me so I could make this quilt. I think she gave me 8 or 10 pairs of jeans.

    I didn't say I wasn't pretty. I said I wasn't photogenic. LoL. I just think I don't look all that great in most pictures.

    Yeah, I know how you feel (feeling like the only younger person here.) Though, it really doesn't help that I look younger than I really am. LoL

    FYG - I was beginning to think that your denim quilt was a phantom quilt! Thanks for posting the pic. It looks so soft & comfy.

    Yeah, I'd like to think he missed out...damn, now I'm feeling the hurt again. I think I'm gonna hit that ice cream bucket in the freezer. Mmmm....chocolate.

    Great job on your quilt!

    Four years ago after my dad passed away, I got all of his blue jeans and made my mom a quilt. She put it on her bed and says it is such a comfort having it. That's what I love about quilting, you can get comfort while you are making a quilt and then give it away to someone.

    Keep up the good work!

    Great quilt! Did you have to be sure that the squares were cut on the straight of grain or does it matter with denim? I have a denim quilt that I have promised to make for my brother and I'm dragging my feet. A little intimidated by the unknown-haven't worked with denim yet although I've been sewing for more than 40 years. Thanks in advance for the advice.
