Rag Quilts

Finally I finished them!  I have been saving old denim pants for at least 30 years.  I'm not sure how much denim I have left.  It took me 3-4 days start to finish working everyday, all day working on the top quilt.  The bottom one took much longer.  I think things would have gone a lot faster if I had the scissors I bought at the Quilters Nook in Custer, SD.  They are wonderful, very sharp and just the right kind of leverage when gripping the scissors.  They made cutting through two layers of heavy denim and two layers of flannel much easier.
