    That's really neat! Was it difficult to sew with denim? Your quilt has a cool modern vibe to it. It's hard to believe it's your first.

    Really pretty quilt, especially for your first. You did a terrific job with the jeans. I always have trouble with jeans wanting to stretch.

    I didn't use batting and I backed it with plush fleece.

    A very nice utility quilt that will get lots of use! And it's made with recycled fabric! What did you use as the backing?

    Love your use of denim. I like how you used the seams in the fabric to enhance your design. I made a denim quilt for my oldest grandson 17 yrs. ago and now his son is using it - it is a bit ragged, but still useable and loved.

    I like your use of the seams of the denim in your design and the use of all the hues of denim. Great job.

    Nice Job! I have been saving jeans for years to make a quilt and until now, figured I would be cutting from seam to seam. I like the look of the seams in the blocks.
