    Very pretty for your first! I'm going to add that to my "list to make" since I have a ton of jeans I can cut up! Keep up the great work!

    Tebill, you did good!!! It's also nice to know about the scissors; if or when I get motivated to do a rag quilt, I want a pair.

    hi tebil what a novel idea - bleach writing... I love the idea of recycling too. I try and use the jeans for pot holders and little bags etc. but never thought of a quilt. I also love the way you did your backing. Keep it up. ciao

    What a great quilt. I bet it's warm. I love the bleach writing. Was it hard? My son would love something like that.

    Great quilt. How appropriate for a recycler and the fact that it is from his dad's jeans makes it even more special. Love the back too.

    I did a bit of practice on extra denim before tackling the real quilt. It was very easy so I only did three or four letters before I felt I was ready to try the real quilt. Some people are saying they are going to try a bleach pen. I'll have to look for one of those as that would be simple, too. Thanks for your kind words.

    That's a great looking quilt! And now I want a pair of the rag cutting snips too. LOL

    Thank you! I don't think I'd make another one without those snips! They made it feel like I was cutting through butter!
