My college freshman son called home to ask when his quilt would be done. After record heat all summer - fall has arrived! So I started cutting up old jeans.
Someone had given me a bag full of old jeans - the kind with enough holes or tears that they would not be very beneficial even for the thrift store. Some of these were mens' jeans - which meant I could get nine inch squares. I cut off the legs, and started making 9" squares.
I had purchased some flannel to back this quilt. I aimed at his school colors - red and blue. I included a gray plaid that would match his sheets and started cutting MORE 9" squares.
I guess I have my work cut out for me.
