I made this quilt in January. I had been saving worn out or out grown jeans from our family for about 2 years. I knew I wanted to make a denim quilt but was not happy with any patterns I found for over a year. I found the tutorial for this quilt online here. It is called Stained Glass Denim Quilt. It was a pretty easy quilt to make.

This is a comfort quilt. It is approximately 52"x56". I made it to lay on the back of my husband's recliner. I always use cotton batting, so this one is nice and warm. I quilted it with straight lines on the black strips. I did not want to wreck the stained glass look. I love it.

The best part about this quilt is that I used denim from every one of us 5 in the family. The largest blocks are 12"x12". That was a challenge, as none of us have jeans that wide. So I used a denim dress that I have not worn in years.
I will leave you with another picture taken by our 13 year old daughter Madeleine. Mabel is of course one of her favorite subjects!
