About 2010 I was asked by my best friend to save and send her all my old worn-out jeans, I saved them for tractor work for several years and had many pair due to that's all that I wear. I sew up tears and iron on patches over holes in them, so all were very worn all Wranglers brand slightly over a year later she sent me this huge box it was all my old jeans made into a quilt still pockets on them zippers and all even with washing instructions with the 1st washing being different from the rest, it is a very heavy warm quilt I am very proud of owning, the diamonds are 2"x2" with new denim edging. The next year I made a very long drive to meet her and gave her all my mother's quilting supplies and boxes of cut out material designs, lining and tons of thread on large cone spools. There is a to and from card like square with a note embroidery sewn in 1 corner I found later on it.
I do the mending/repair on all my clothes still.

Dennis, you have a special quilt. If you did some of the repair then you know how difficult Jeans are to sew on. You appreciate how much work goes in to working with jean fabric. I make ladies hand bags out of my jean fabric, so I know how hard it is to sew on that material. Thanks for taking a look at my quilts.

I did all repairs on my jeans, I do admire the time my friend took to make it. Each of my quilts when not in use have a separate storage bag and also, I have a quilt display case. I also have a sewing machine. But do most by hand.
