I made this quilt because I wanted something for the kiddos and I to sit on outside. I know I just blogged about this one at the beginning of summer, but now that we've used it so much for a season, I like it even more :) The pattern is called whirly giggles and can be found (for free!) here.
I used parts of jeans along with several red fabrics. The jeans are perfect for this type of thing and reusing them makes me feel green :) Be forewarned, when people see something you've made from jeans, you will be inundated with them. Just FYI. The borders are sturdy vintage tea towels that a close friend gave me when her grandmother passed away. Some had stains and holes so cutting them up for this gave them new life.
The back is a "tapestry" I bought at Urban Outfitters several years ago and hung as my bedroom curtains for a long time. All in all, the only thing I bought new for this was the batting! We've created so many memories on it already and I'm sure we'll have many more to come.
And here it is in use! :)
