First Quilt Finish!

I have finished my first quilt.  It's a denim rag quilt and it was so easy it almost shouldn't count as a "quilt", but it's finished and my grandson loves it.  He took his nap with it today.
Here's the finished product: 

 

The squares are 6" and the quilt is 6 squares by 9 squares.  Here is a closeup of the squares:




I used flannel for the backing:


Here is a close up of the flannel:


I am happy with the finished product, however, there are a few things I will do differently next time.
I also spent a little bit of time this weekend cleaning and continuing to organize my play room.  I bought some neat cubes today at Target.  They only had 3 white ones left.  I'll post pics soon of my play room progress.
Not much stitching time this weekend so no progress pic on RHS.  DD school had a two hour delay Friday morning because of ice on the road so I stitched while waiting to take her to the bus stop and head on in to work.  Friday night we took her to see Avatar.  Second time for DH and myself.  It is a very good movie!
Saturday was spent working on the denim quilt and organizing, then DD and grandson came over for dinner and spent the night.  Today was church, grocery shopping, and visiting the parents.  Busy weekend and over to quickly!  Hope you are staying warm, and Happy Stitching and/or Quilting!!

Love the quilt! I have collecting old jeans for some time now to make a quilt to take on pic-nics. I like they way yours turned out. Hubby's been wanting to see Avatar. Everyone we know who's seen it , just loves it.
