What are you most proud of? These quilts are so heavy, so durable and so popular. Each member of my family has requested and received one. They are great for throwing in the car for taking to a ball game, taking a snooze under or having a picnic on. I've made 14 so far. People are still saving their old jeans for me and I've since retired and moved to another country. I'm helping the continent to recycle and everyone seems to be benefiting. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Spread the word that you need old jeans. They work so well in other recycle projects too. Cut away the seams, throw away the waist bands, rivets and zippers. Save a few pockets and labels to embellish some of the blocks. I've stitched the labels back on the squares and put pockets of a few edge blocks. It's nice to have a pocket to place your keys and such if you're on the beach or a picnic, or a place to tuck a tissue or even hide a snack.
