Denim Quilt

This has to be one of my favorite quilts so far! I started this way back as a graduation gift, but....I loved it so much that I didn't have the heart to give it away! It took me a while to find the right backing for it. I originally wanted to use a flannel sheet. I made a trip to our local thrift shop and found the PERFECT cotton sheet for the back! It has huge hydrangeas on it in the same tones of blue as the jeans! I couldn't have been more lucky! It's my TV watching quilt and is nice and heavy for the winter :) And the best part about this quilt is the cost:

Denim from old jeans-FREE
Cotton Sheet-$1.99
Thread-about $3 worth
