Denim for Quilting

Last month I showed you my pile of denim that I was going to use in some projects, it wasn't a whole lot and didn't take up a lot of space in my craft room so after I wrote the article I put it away and forgot about it. Then my daughter came over with an armful of worn out jeans from my beautiful but very active grandsons. I was already in the process of working on a string quilt which I talked about on my charity blog and suddenly had an idea. I didn't have enough squares for what I was planning but had more than enough if I set them with denim squares in between. It isn't finished yet but when it is I'll post another picture.

Cute, I made a denim quilt for my son a couple years ago - it was a nice *winter* weight quilt even without batting!

Great idea to incorporate the denim with the string units :)
