    I made this for my great grandson to take to nursery school. It is made from old denim jeans with a red flannel backing.
    I call it his "go-to" quilt.

    That is a great quilt. I bet it holds up well too. He is going to love it for a long time.

    How neat is that? It is sturdy enough and big enough to go with him as he grows. Great quilt! :thumbup:

    Isn't it exciting to finish a first quilt? I recently finished my first, too - a baby girl quilt. Now working on an easy jelly roll strip quilt from a tutorial on this board. This quilting stuff is fun and addictive. And your quilt turned out beautiful - I know the little boy will be happy to have it. Looking forward to seeing your next endeavor.

    Yes, Aunt Retta, #2 is in the works....a purple, plain and multi print for granddaughter who is graduation from HS and going on to college...I have 2 squares, 24" x 24" put together and have 7 more to complete...I am totally hooked on quilting. Now that I know how to post a picture, I will do it when this one is finished. Oh, how I love quilting!

    Wonderful. I love the idea of a red flannel backing.
