Blue Jeans Quilt Ideas

January 12, 2011

Recycled Jean QuiltOld jeans recycled to make a quilt with a flannel backing.

Approximate Time: 12 hours

Supplies:

Instructions:

The jeans and flannel are pre-washed, before cutting. After the desired shape of the quilt block is determined, cut your cardboard to the shape. I usually do a simple shape and start cutting the jean pieces.

After the jean pieces are all cut I find it easier to pin each on the flannel sheet and cut. I then sew a basting stitch around the 2 pieces and start making my stacks. I like my quilts BIG, so I usually try to use the biggest flannel sheet I can find. You don't usually have much waste of the sheet.

When I start piecing them together, I put a whole row together and lay it across a bed to get a idea of how many rows I will need, then I snip all the edges and continue to sew the rows together.

After I have all the rows sewn together I wash the quilt. It will be frayed on every edge, but because the edges are all snipped it makes it easier to pull all the threads. I put it in the dryer and dry it only about 90% dry. Jean material is very giving and can be pulled to shape. I then lay it on a clothes line in the basement and start pulling threads, this takes awhile, but it sure turns out nice.

I had 5 pairs of my children's old jeans and were beyond repair. So I cut them into 8 x 8 squares and some were 8 x 4 rectangles. I arranged them as I desired.

Blue Jeans Quilts don't have to look like they are made from old blue jeans. I made this one using a purchased panel from Walmart and different colored old jeans plus some beads and a fleece backing to make this Indian style quilt for my sister.
