Jakob's quilt

I love the way this turned out. Made from old jeans (mostly his Dad's). Bought the striped canvas at Joann's. The back is navy flannel. Quilted one square at a time and then stitched rows. Squares are wrong sides together and the ends fray when washed and dryed. Quilting part was easy, the rest not so easy. Each seam has to be snipped 1/4" apart. That took a long time, but worth it.

Once you start making denim quilts, you may not be able to stop!
