This quilt is for my DS and he loves music. Orchestra music! he is 8! I figured denim was 'boyish' and 'manly'. I didn't want him to outgrow this quilt. i made it BIG! I also thought it would be cool if i left some pockets in tact on the jeans in the quilt. I then had to dodge them when i quilted so that they didn't get sewn together :)The backing was going to be a twin flat sheet, but the top got too big for it! I decided to add the strip to spice things up and to add the extra space i needed.
It is toasty warm! i am really happy with it. The "pattern" runs vertically so i set out to only quilt in vertical lines. Then i got a bit worried, so i ran a FEW horizontal lines of stitching. the actual quilting isn't the best part...i AM new to all this and wow blue jean quilts are HEAVY!
It's done and we all love it! yay!
