Q for you re blue jean quilts
A group of ladies and myself will be making quilts to send to a children's home for Moms and kids with HIV/AIDS in Burkina Faso, Africa. I have a lot of my son's blue jeans here and thought about making blue jean quilts. I imagine they will have to wash these by hand. Do you think they would be too heavy for the Mom's who often aren't feeling well?
If you think it would be OK...I was thinking 6" squares and just backing them with fabric. I know they like color and Blue Bamboo has a great sale going. Or should I just do the quilt unbacked and fray the edges. Do they hold up well that way? I don't want them to fall apart quickly.
Thanks for the advice...you guys are the best!
