Jean Quilt

One of my ex’s had this amazing blanket his grandmother had made for him – it was blanket sized but the top was made of jean patches quilted together.  It was warm and comfy and delightfully heavy, very easy to sleep under.

I loved this quilt, but when we broke up it was his.

I’m been saving my jeans as they work out for about a decade, and I finally came to the conclusion that I wasn’t ever going to put in the effort to make one.  I don’t know how to quilt, and I’m not motivated to learn.

Luckily for me, there’s a woman about an hour and a half from me who makes quilts for people.

And that’s exactly what I want for my birthday.

We went and saw her yesterday and dropped off all the material I had collected, negotiated cost, and now there will be a quilt sometime in August for me to pick up.

I’m so excited!  I’ll finally have that quilt I loved, only it will be MINE.

What’s the silliest thing you ever wanted for your birthday?  Was it expensive?  Inquiring minds want to know!
