Gentleman's Quarters

The Spring Blogger's Quilt Festival is here and this is my entry for Spring 2011.

This is a quilt I made for my son, Jacob, from his old blue jeans and flannel. He loves this quilt. Its kind of heavy and he can't hurt it because all of the fabric has been washed and dryed countless times before it ever evolved into a quilt. I just throw it into the washer and dryer or like the picture, hang it on the line. Its handquilted, which was kind of hard since the jean material is so thick!

I love that quilt and I'm sure your son does too. Denim and flannel go so well together for a man's quilt.

You hand quilted denim?!? Your poor hands! But the quilt is fabulous! Perfect for a man - and must have tonnes of meaning for your son.

Wow I love this quilt! It is such a guy quilt. And what a great way to use the discarded jeans and shirts. Good job.

I love how you incorporated all the different fabrics into this quilt. I am a hand quilter, too. But I'm not sure I could quilt through denim. It turned out great.
