A Story of Blue Jeans

It is finished.

Em's denim quilt that is.

This project took a long time, but making quilts for other people is really a lot of fun.  Going through t-shirts for Katie and Natalie's quilts gave me an incite into their teenage and young adult years.  I got to learn about them in the years before I knew them.  Emilie's denim quilt was quite the same.  Thinking of all the things she experienced in these pairs of jeans.  College classes, campus ministry retreats, building projects for Habitat for Humanity, capture the flag on the quad, and very, very, cold snow ball fights. ;) 

In my mind, quilts should tell a story.  I've been fortunate to help tell three of them.
