Denim Lonestar Quilt

Hey Everyone! So my little town is having their big celebration this weekend, Turtle Days! Our church's quilters aid is displaying their beautiful quilts and I was called and asked if I would like to display this quilt 

(That's my little JJ)

You have no idea how honored and blessed I am to even be thought of! This quilt is made primarily of old jeans. I love being able to take Jeans and make beautiful quilts. Now don't get me wrong, who doesn't have a few regular square patch denim quilts? And who doesn't love them? Super easy to shake off, heavy and warm for those cold nights, but everyone already has one. A friend of mine, her mother had made her a Lonestar denim quilt when she graduated high school and I have always loved it so I wanted to make one for myself. Once I figured out how to cut it and move the stips it really wasn't that hard (it did take a few pairs of jeans to get that right thought). Maybe one of these days I'll write up a pattern for this using jeans! 

Have a great weekend!
