    You know, Penny, you can't play the humble "I'm just a beginner" card anymore. :wink: :-D Everything you have posted has been beautiful, including the denim quilt. You are very talented! Thanks for sharing.

    Great job - I have a collection of 6 1/2" jean squares accumulating on the shelf.

    The 6 1/2" is the size of my ruler.

    Penny, you did a great job on this quilt. Denim is not an easy fabric to work with so you need to pat yourself on the back. What a wonderful gift :D I really like the pocket detail. Great job :thumbup:

    Your quilt is very pretty. You did a nice job. I've never made a jean quilt but I can imagine it would be heavy & hard to move around to quilt.

    Penny, what a beautiful quilt. I have worked with denim and I know how difficult and heavy it is to manage. Love all the little personal touches and the colour placement. Thanks so much for sharing with us.

    Penny you did a fantastic job on this quilt! Love it. Denim is not the easiest to work with so you do deserve a pat on the back. A huge pat! Job well done for a wonderful quilt.

    I thought that the tags hanging from the belt loops was a great original touch. You did a great job.

    So glad you got your jean material Penny - I just found a pair of my dh's that needed to be retired and was going to ask you if you still needed them. Your quilt turned out really well - SUPER JOB! (never did find the jeans I thought I had around - must be here some place).

    Thanks Penny for sharing. I like how you scattered your son's name and the tag is just so precious! Great job!!!

    Beautiful, and very original. What a job it must have been -- my arms ache just looking at it. I know how hard denim is to work with -- I started one and it sits in it's own box like a monster that needs taming. I love the name on it, the pockets, labels, it's all great. You are no "beginner".
