What are you most proud of? I knew it was going to be really cute but it turned out to be more beautiful then what I had imagined.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't forget to cut the block the right way, I made a mistake while cutting this out and my lines are not matching up the way the should... oops Cut in half _ then the other half_ last cut X

Absolutely gorgeous. Your color scheme is awesome! I too am making a quilt with the asterick block and I will post pics when I am done. Good job, I got several ideas on other quilts just because you posted your quilt. Thank you, Carmen

Hi, I need to make this! So it works better to in half and in half than do the diagonal cuts like the instructions say for the block on craftsy? What size is the quilt? What did you do for the boarder? Great job, thanks so much, Linda

Hi Linda, I made the cuts in half first because the leg of the jeans were not wide enoufgh to make a full block. I used two halves and sewed them togehter with the strip to start my block. I think I did a 12" block or two 6" strips x 12" long. The size of my finished quilt is around a full size. I never measure theses things for my kids I just keep adding boarders until I get the size I want. For the boarder I stripped together all my leftover peices horzantaly with frayed edges overlapping sewn with a zigzag stitch. I used fusable interfacing to stick all my strips together before I sewed them down, this helped keep things togehter and in the right place. Hope this helps, this was pretty easy project to put together. Have fun!
