Denim patchwork quilt.

I have been buying up denim jeans from opshops for a few years, to make things that I've seen on the Net such as tote bags, pot holders, coasters, place mats, etc.  Once I'd done all those, I still had a lot of denim left over, and after seeing one on Pinterest, I decided to make a small quilt with the remaining denim.  I liked this idea of simple squares sewn together and quilted by topstitching.  There is no wadding as the denim is thick enough, and the backing is a piece of fleece that I had in my stash.  The binding was an old plaid shirt.
It is lap quilt size, and someone suggested that I use it as a floor mat at the kitchen sink.  No way!  I know it looks rough and ready, but I already have rubber mats at my kitchen sink which are made for the purpose!
