    They're all called "Tapestry of Colors" by Wilmington Prints. I used about 1 and 1/3 yards of each of the 6 prints.

    Eddie it looks great i'll have to get my denium one out an take picture an show you the heavest quilt i've ever done an it has
    no batting just denium an flannel.But that jokers warm just
    the way it is.I like mine to protect couch from puppys or forpicnic blanket.I almost got shot with one pair of blue jeans I
    put in it.It was a pair of my hubbies old jeans that my son had gotten big enough to wear.he asked were they where an I started pointing out squares in quilt .son wasn't happy with mom.

    Do you sew an X in the center? It is beautiful. I have made a couple baby quilts in this manner and they do go up fast. HARD on the hands with the clipping, for me.

    Yes, I layer a batting square between the two layers of flannel and sew an X on it to hold the 3 layers together. Then I sew the blocks all together with a 1" seam, and snip the fringe afterwards.

    That's beautiful, Dizzy! I bet both of my daughters would fight over something like that! Who's the lucky person in your house that gets to use it?

    Stunning colours Eddie...love your work and Dizzy your denim one is just lovely.

    Thanks for posting the pics of the scissors, my husband bought me the spring loaded snips (Fiskars) they worked a treat too.

    we take turns my daughter wants one an with the jeans she has given me in the last four yrs i think theres even enough to do three more of them.but son will more than likely get this one when he moves out.since i cut up his favorite jeans in the making of this one.

    I do love it, Eddie. How tall are you? Just curious, when ppl make the laps 60" long, I always think somebody's toes are going to get cold. good job :XD:
