One week prior to graduation I found the pink jeans and opted to make the pillow and border. Only the quilt top was done in time for the graduation party.
So I put color coordinated bandanas and assorted school supplies in each of the pockets, boxed the quilt top up, wrapped it up and presented it to the graduate, promising to have it complete by fall. Here are the results.
The back is a variegated pink fleece. Low loft batting inside. Pink yarn ties. As with my other jeans quilts, user reports it's very warm!
