Happy Scrappy Family Tree Rag Quilt

 Ok so the name may possibly be a little lame, but I don't care.  I made this rag quilt for my sister and her husband for Christmas.  It's my first rag quilt and there are plenty of flaws in it but I love it, and more importantly THEY loved it, and that's all I can ask for.

I had gotten a charm pack, originally planning on making them some awesome coasters for their Christmas gift but then I got a gift card to my local quilt shop and I bought another charm pack and some yardage from that line so I could make something better...but I didn't know exactly what yet.
I had some old jeans that didn't fit me anymore (thank you kids for that extra baby weight!) and I couldn't just throw them away, it seemed so wasteful!  Inspiration hit...I'd make a denim rag quilt!  I didn't have quite enough denim so I went to Goodwill and bought a few more pairs.  Then I went to work!  More after the jump.
