Fleece-and-Jeans Quilt

A few years ago, I made a jeans-quilt for my oldest son ... I put it together in a couple months of Sundays (literally) - it was my Sunday-afternoon project, since I "didn't have time" but wanted to get it done.

It's jeans squares on the top, and the backing is a twin-sized fleece blanket. The fleece makes the perfect backing, and it's warm and fuzzy, and there's no need for batting in between the layers!

Ever since then, I've been buying fleece blankets on sale and meaning to get around to making some more denim quilts - So, lately, I'm sewing a lot of plain denim squares and a few flowered denim squares ...

This one's for my youngest daughter, whose birthday is coming up ... (Shhhhhh ... she doesn't read my blog, although she is learning to read remarkably well ...)

I'm loving the cute little details on the denim ... And the kids think that pockets on their quilts are really neat.

I'm hoping to finish the new jeans quilt soon ... stay tuned ...
