Last week one of the kids down the street had a Birthday and Tanya and I decided we wanted to try out a Rag Quilt with Jeans. What we underestimated was the over all weight of a said Rag Quilt made out of Jeans. We figured a full quilt out of Jeans would be too heavy and did every other square Jeans. Well I am here to say that, while its lighter then a full blanket it is WAY, WAY, Too Heavy. The only saving grace is the kid getting this quilt is Autistic and they tend to like heaver blankets (you often see blankets made with weights in them for autistic kids).
On the alternating material we decided stars would be fun and dug into the stash for random stars. Here is a closeup of the quilt you can see that I added in as many seams as I could as I love the extra style it adds.
And lastly the back is made of blue flannel. It also has flannel in the middle. Again this is a nice and heavy lap quilt and will keep any kid warm. (Oh and Tanya says it was like wrestling a Alligator to sew haha)
Tanya would also like me to announce the winner to her rag quilt giveaway (well rag quilt scissors giveaway) Jared pulled #19 out of the bowl. Gene Black is the winner. He seems to be lucky as he has won from us in the past.
My favorite "weird" color combo is purple and green with some yellow accents. - actually if you think of a purple iris, it is not so weird.
