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 love this! My sons' football team is the Eagles and this would be an awesome gift! Please tell me how to get the pattern!
I'm looking for something unique to make for someone who enjoys eagles. The quilt is perfectly stunning and used of recycled material to boot! Any chance you would consider please sharing the pattern? Thanks so much.

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

My husband's favorite Bible verse talks about soaring with eagles. I would love to make this quilt for him for Christmas. Could you tell me how I could get the pattern?
One word to describe this eagle quilt, AWESOME! WOW! What a great work of creativity. If you ever sell this quilt, how much would you charge? Thanks, Dee Dee
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!
I'd love to get the instructions on how u did this. My mother is into eagles too!!!! Great Christmas gift
did u cut squares or just use all the jean? I think this a kool quilt, my brother-in-laws collects things w/eagles and it would be kool to be able to make him one!! thank u
Pat could you please e-mail me to talk about this quilt i have been thinking and thinking of making a eagle quilt for my son for when he becomes a eagle scout and think this would works great thanks patshere2003 AT yahoo.com
You are so talented! Thankyou for sharing your beautiful quilt, I've never quilted before but you have inspired me to hava a go!
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.
Pat, this quilt and your other quilts are so beautiful. You are extremely talented. Thanks so much for sharing the pictures with us.
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.
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
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!
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.
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.
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!

It is even more beautiful when seen in a close-up
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!
GREAT JOB!!!! Beautiful quilt!!! Great idea of using old jeans.You could also hang it on the wall I guess, unless it's too heavy.So neat !! I love it!!!
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!
Beautiful doesn't say enough....soooo do you sell them? Do you use a pattern?
