It Can be Made from Yardage, Too!
This wonderful denim quilt was designed specifically for recycling old jeans. Once you have the fabric prepared, it goes together very quickly because of the large pieces.
Denim yardage can also be used. The design will be beautiful in other fabrics, as well. This also makes a charming memory quilt when made from the jeans owned by someone special.
The large quilt, designed by Tara from Stitch and Yarn Store, is 85″ square. However, the pattern includes instructions for resizing it according to your preference or the jeans you have available.
The small wall quilt is 36″ square. The strong design reminds us of a barn quilt.
Tips are also provided for selecting jeans and their placement, as well as preparing the jeans for stitching.
You’ll find a Q & A section here with a lot of helpful tips from the designer.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article).
