One of a kind folk art.

Jeans have become the workhorse clothing for many of us, but particularly for farmers and cattlemen. A friend of mine is a cattleman whom I visit weekly at the local farmer’s market. His work is important to our community so I make quilts for him. He gifts me generously with products from his ranch, Rocking Chair Ranch Cattle. (RCRC)

One day, he asked if I could use some of his old jeans to make a quilt. Of course! The next week, he brought me 17 pair of well-worn jeans which I turned into quite a number of quilts! He has most of the quilts I made,(and his mother has one, too) but I did keep this one.

Using these jeans, I celebrated the well-worn aspects of work jeans: oil stains, worn out knees, torn pockets—keeping the history of the jeans intact. All of the jean pockets on the quilt are functional. The accompanying fabrics offer a bit of whimsy (even if not particularly PC!)
