BOM - May 2011
This was the pattern for the Block of the Month for my quilt guild for the June meeting. I used heavy denim for the pants,and recycled shirts from Goodwill. I really wanted to win the blocks, so I made 4 to give me 4 chances. Didn't work though, some other lucky lady got them all. Some of the women were really creative - they add a tiny patch pocket on the pants, and gold top-stitching lines just like on a real pair of jeans. Some even added detail to the boots. I'll definitely keep this pattern - my nephew and wife live in Houston, so if they ever have a son, they'll get one of these quilts for sure!! May 2011
