    done, This is my first big quilt I have done. I learned how to match corners, and that you don't practice free motion quilting, on a jean quilt. because it is very heavy and hard to handle. and It put me down for three days from pain. I want to thank all you wonderful ladies for donating the jean fabric, and Doug to. He sent me this boss pocket, my son seen that and he said yea because I am the boss, after that I made a tag that slips right in the pocket that says Mon :-D Please look past my mistakes. God bless. Penny

    You did a nice job on the corners (seam intersections) and I really like your color placement.

    Denim is challenging to work with - give yourself a pat on the back.

    A great quilt and you did a great job! MQ on a regular quilt is hard enough, but on a denim one it's even harder. I know I've done both!

    What a nice jean quilt and such a hard, heavy fabric to muster around the machine to quilt. Looks super. Congrats.

    Beautiful quilt. I know your son will treasure this! Just one question--how heavy is this to wash? :D

    Penny, I am sooo happy that you were able to get this together for Jake! You did a great job with selecting and laying out the different shades of the denim. I love the pockets, and the embroidered letters! This is a very handsome and heart-warming quilt.
    You are fabulous. Love ya!

    Penny, that's wonderful!!! I know that you like denim, but I happen to have 2 yards of a batik that I'm not going to use (its not my style - more modern) and wondered if you wanted it? If so, PM me and I send it out next week when I get more pkgs out.

    What a great quilt. That will keep him nice and warm.
    I can see why you were sore with the free motion quilting, but it was worth it!

    You son should be very pleased!
