Feeling blue - denim that is

Over Labor Day weekend, I also finally finished my denim quilt. Ran into a few snafus:
  1. Wasn't as big as I wanted. Surprisingly ran out of denim!
  2. The backing wasn't quite wide enough, so it didn't cover the sides completely, so I had to cut down my border on the front. My initial plan was to have a 4-5" border, and do some free motion quilting on it, but I had to cut it down to 2", which seemed just fine plain.

But though it didn't turn out exactly as I wanted, I'm still pretty happy with it. I like working with denim because it makes a nice heavy blanket. Just in time for fall! (if our heat wave ever goes away...)
