    Here's a picture of a quilt for a customer that wanted bluejeans and homespuns for a gift for her son. What do you think? (note sarcasm)

    Thanks for the compliments. I personally think it's a little on the ugly side.

    Remember, the customer is always right. I personally like it and think my 20 something grandsons would like it also.

    I decided long ago, that when it comes to handmade items, there is no such thing as "ugly"!! It may not be to my taste, but the dedication that it takes to produce a quilt makes it special, no matter what!
    And actually...I like this one! :)

    So creative. I wouldn't have had an idea of what to do with the fabrics. You did great. I believe her son will enjoy it very much.

    It looks so warm & comfy & the recipient will love it. Is it very heavy (I bet it is). How hard was it to sew all the denim?

    My boys love denim quilts. They are HEAVY. I think I'll try this one. With 5 boys, I'm always looking for new ideas. At least they save me their jeans!

    Personally I think it's a little drab, but if that's what she wanted, then I think it looks great.

    The customer is always right and you gave her what she wanted. I'm just not too sure why she would waste your talents like that.

    Maybe if it had different color flannel it would be more alive! But I bet a guy would like it! LOL

    Frankly, I'm with you on this one, but then, I have two teenage grandsons who could turn a silk purse into a sow's ear in a heartbeat, so maybe this is perfect for a teen boy's quilt. It won't show dirt and it should hold up to abuse.
    You didn't say how old this woman's son is, so maybe his taste will be a bit more refined as he ages, and you can do one more fitted to your talents.

    It is def. a guy quilt. Meaning masculine looking. And it does look warm. If the Customer is happy & thinks her Son will be happy with it, that is what counts. I'm sure it was made with a lot of love.
