Jean Rag Quilt

So for the first time in a long time I have actually finished a quilt. I love to quilt but it is very time consuming.

I started this rag jean quilt when I was pregnant with James. That was when I found that I really don't want to be on the floor snipping the seams at 8 months pregnant. I like the quilt, it was a good use of old jeans, but it took me a total of about 6 hours to snip all the seams. For how small of a quilt it is, by the time I got to the end I was going to go snip crazy.

The front is all recycled jeans, along with a pair of tan cordoroys thrown in. The back is just brown flannel.

I intend to keep it in the car, to be able to just throw around when needed. When fixing the car, on the ground in the summer time, to protect the seat. You know, a throw.

But all in all, I like it a lot and am just mostly glad that it is finally finished and out of my 'in progress' pile.

Live and Love
