From jeans to quilt

Were you as in awe of all the creations for this year's Refashioner's Jeans challenge?  I was so inspired that I just had to join it.  I started with jeans, but not just any.  For years I'd been saving my boys jeans as they grew up or out of them.  Usually they had holes in the knees so couldn't be passed on to a younger brother.  I don't have a before photo, but I'm pretty sure you've all seen jeans with holes in the knees!  So I created a quilt for my oldest son from all his old, holey jeans.
It could very well be my favorite of all the things I've ever refashioned!  To see lots of process photos and all the details, visit me here at Skirt Fixation.
