Home at last!

Here's all those old jeans in their new home. My son-in-law loves the pockets on this quilt because it is a handy place to store the TV remote. I don't know if it can be spotted peeking out of a pocket in the photo? And I really have scored big time with my presents--two different people gave me CD's. And my new recordings--in no particular order--are Norah Jones "The Fall," Sharon Isbin "Guitar Essentials," "Andrea Bocelli "Amore," Adam Lambert "For Your Entertainment." Some mixture I know, but I like just about everything. I guess I draw the line at progressive jazz, hip hop, or something way out. Now, if I can only manage to clear off the table, it's about time to pin baste that quilt I'm making. And I have been working on that free-pieced letter thing, but it is requiring a lot of reworking (already) and thought.

By far the best blue jean quilt that I've seen! Absolutely fantastic. And a pocket for the remote? My gosh, it doesn't get any better than that..you bet he was happy!

LOL! using the pockets for the remote - leave it to a man to think of that!

Norah Jones' "The Fall" is on my list to get eventually too. Maybe later this week? ;- )

Love the pattern that you used here! It puts me in mind of the County Lines pattern. Did you make this pattern up yourself, or was it an already-created pattern?
