Vary the Colors and Size to Accommodate Old Clothing You Have on Hand!
Recycle old denim jeans, flannel shirts and pajamas into a wonderful picnic quilt. It’s perfect for spreading on the ground for fireworks, outdoor music events and more. Or, keep it in your car for times when you need some extra warmth.
The quilt is constructed with a quilt-as-you-go technique that’s perfect for beginners. There is no batting, but softened denim and cozy flannels provide warmth.
Depending on the number and sizes of old jeans you have to work with, the finished size of the quilt will vary. Two construction methods are included to accommodate different styles of jeans.
The clever pattern is from Double Nickle Quilts. Read it through and head to the thrift store, if needed, to produce a quilt of the size and colors you want.
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). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
