I have an aunt who makes a ton of quilts. She made one for my son’s graduation. It’s all denim jeans pieces on the front and the backing is a plaid flannel. What makes it even more special is the fact that it includes an old pair of my son’s jeans – very old. Size 3! Can you see the little jeans on the bottom left side and top left? These are his jeans. I used to give the clothes he outgrew to my cousin (her daughter) for her son, who is a couple years younger than mine. I guess she somehow got an old pair of these jeans from my cousin. So that’s kind of fun to have his little jeans in the quilt! She embroidered the names of the schools he attended, in the appropriate school colors, on the quilt, too. And then she put candy in the pockets of the jeans to add even more fun to the gift.
Here are more photos of this wonderful quilt!
