Eagle Quilt

You can use recycled jeans to make a fabulous quilt! The entire background of this Eagle Quilt was made from recycled blue jeans. Bleach, acrylic paints, and different colored jeans make up the landscape and the whole thing was quilted by free motion.

I wish, wish, wish your picture were closer up so I could really see the detailing. I love denim and I've never thought of doing something with it like your quilt. It's beautiful!

Don't ever WASH it...hang it instead. It's a work of art with the painted background. I've heard of taking children's special colorfast clothing and "preserving" them, almost "as is" in a quilt, so they could both remember, but show others what they wore "back

when". I have several quilts I was given but have never used. Colors are important to me, too. Thank the Creator for giving this gift/skill to pass on to others. It's fantastic!

Hi to everyone and thank you for all of the praise on this quilt! It did take me a long time in the planning stages to figure out how I was going to do it. This quilt was made for my son without a pattern or anything but I did have some photos I used as inspiration. I would probably never be able to realize any kind of profit if I were to sell these quilts because I put so much time into them. I would be happy to share more detailed photos with anyone if you want to e-mail me and I can show you many other blue jean quilts I have made as well if you are interested. This particular quilt did turn out to be very heavy. In fact, I told my son it would probably protect him and his entire family from a nuclear holocaust! Thanks again everyone!

My dh collects eagles and I would really like a pattern if i could. I dont quilt or sew but could probably find someone to do it for me if you dont sell them. He would love this, it is beautiful.

Your quilt is beautiful.

I have been using old recycled jeans for quitea few years now to make quilts. My dad said he liked heavy quilts to sleep under so I sent one of my jean quilts. They are heavy.

Since the seams are bulky in a jean quilt I choose a pattern where the seams do not match. I look at tile floors for pattern ideas.

Hi again. If anyone is interested in seeing more views of this quilt as it was being made, go to http://www.webshots.com and search for "Eagle Jeans Quilt". It should take you to my online photo albums. Thanks again!

this is beautiful, i wish i had the patience, over the years i have made quilts using sweatshirts, still have one or two but the rest were given to an organization here in town that helps the homeless (over 200 of themquilts that is) , sweatshirt quilts are also very heavy especially when you have to wash them, lol, but i find i cannot sleep without the weight of one now

i have tried to make denim quilts but my sewing machine can't handle the thick seams but i still tend to keep coloured denim jeans that i come across, have no idea what i am going to do with them but some day a use will come to mind

great idea!

Pat,

What time & effort you put into this beautiful project! I'd have to hang it instead of letting someone sleep with it! Grin! Absolutely gorgeous. Eagles have so many meanings to me. Thanks for sharing your truly wonderful gift of quilting.

Hi, I tried to look at more photos under webshots.com, but it freezes up on me. Is there something wrong with webshots.com? Is the site down?

I just LOVE your quilt..want to see a close up.

Hi this is so cool the "EAGLE QUILT". Do you have the pattern or know where we can purchase one? My son is about to make his Eagle in Boy Scouts and this would be a neat gift for him. I am just getting started in learning quilting but my mom quilts a lot!

Eagle quilt is just beautiful. Would you be interested in giving instructions to how you made it? I am working on different ideas to decorate my living room in Native American and this would fit just perfect. Thank-you
