It is finished! I have been shoving this project to the sidelines for several months and at last I was able to get back to it and devote a good day to it. It is far from perfect. My excuse -- jeans are hard to work with. The stretch, the weight, the variation of denim all contribute to its imperfection and to its individuality and character. The denim that was contributed to this project came from my stash of family jeans that have been collected down through the years so there is a little bit of each of us sewn into this quilt. I used my quilt-as-you-go method here.
I hope our Fifth-Born enjoys his quilt. He has been waiting long enough for it. Oops-- do you see the other imperfections here on the back? I honestly didn't until I took the photo. Ah well, my boy will see far beyond the imperfect and believe it is perfectly good for him!
