I wised up this time...and I made 8x8 inch squares I cut 312 squares for 2 quilts....these squares were not all 8x8 I mixed and matched and ended up with 8x8. I did have some squares left over....if you can
believe it. The quilts roughly 60x85.
Jordan's jean quilt top and Cameron's jean quilt top
These are the last 2 jean quilt tops I just finished. Within the next few weeks I'll get the backs on and get them tied. They'll be ready so the next time I see my grandchildren they'll have their jean quilts too. Now this family is complete with all their quilts....and I will now start with another family.
It's their turn...
These are the first 2 quilts I made. Nate, Colby and their family were vacationing and we got to their house before they got home so I made up their beds to surprise them. I learned a lot since I started the first jean quilt. One of my grandson's (Tom) calls his quilt his 'pocket' quilt, and he's a cousin to Nate and Colby. I tell you this because he also has a bunk bed and wants me to make him another jean quilt for his top bunk...so they match. Well, it won't be long until his bunk beds will be gone. So he'll just have the one quilt. My sewing room is now cleared out of worn out jeans as is my cutting table. So now you ask me was I able to fill my daughter's vision of jean quilts? I say go to her blog, Bluefamilyscene.blogspot.com and let her tell you her side of the jean quilt story.
