Comfort Tactile Quilt

This quilt is made of denim shirts and jeans, a cotton flannel shirt, and a silk flannel shirt.  There are seven working pockets on the quilt.  A couple of them from the jeans have the rivets.  The ones from the shirts still have their buttons.  These things add to the tactile feel of the quilt which is important as I made this quilt for a new friend/colleague who is blind due to retinitis pigmentosa.

The quilt is machine pieced and quilted.  It is 45 in X 55 in.

The next few photos show some of the pockets.


The back is a simple blue cotton.
