Brand New Jean Quilt!

DSCN4004

So I had an ex that I lived with for a while, and he had this amazing jean quilt his grandmother made for him.  I adored.

The relationship ended, and he, of course, kept the quilt.

I wanted one SO BADLY.

I saved my jeans for close to ten years, always meaning to make a quilt like it.

You know how that goes – I just ended up with a bag full of jeans.  I don’t like sewing enough to do a project like this.  So, when I met someone who does Memory Quilts (for those who had passed), I asked if she would be willing to make a quilt for me.

She said ‘of course!’ and ‘that will be $$$’, and I dropped off the supplies in June?  Or early July.  The total charge was $400 for her hours of work and supplies.

She brought it to us yesterday, and it’s GORGEOUS.

I LOVE IT.

Isn’t it gorgeous?  Tundra wasn’t sure what he thought of the detergent she used on it and was kind of huffy, but I’m so happy with it!  (And I just realized you can see my bra in the photo, but whatever.)

It’s bigger than a King – she used as much of the fabric as possible.

What do you think?  What type of bedding do you like?  What type of environment do you need to sleep well?  I love a lot of weight in blankets, a cold room, and a fan blowing on me.  Would you like a quilt like this?  Inquiring minds want to know!
