What are you most proud of? The fact that I had no assistance for a first endeavor of this size - and the look on my husbands face Christmas morning when he opened it up and realized I had made it just for him.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Just take your time and know it doesn't have to be perfect. if it's made with love behind it - it'll be as perfect as it needs to be.

What stitch did you use in the corners? I have made denim quilts in the past but find the weight difficult as it shifts and the tack stitches end up pulling. So I made denim duvet covers and just tie the corners of the quilt inside. comments?

Love your quilt and wonder if you used fusible web to piece it together or did you sew seams. If seams, wasn't it a bit bulky for sleeping in. I thought I would try the fusible and stitch around the edges when finishing the top. What do you think?

I am using all my grown up daughters jeans. I'm saving the pockets so she can use it for organizing. I will still have enough for a large quilt. I'm using a pattern I found to make rows. 6 by 2 + 6 by 4...We shall see. I am also adding in between the rows her left over clothes...So much I just couldn't throw out all the beautiful and different prints. Should be nice since the denim is all blue...( :
