Denim and plaid flannel quilt.This is a quilt I made using denim jeans and some flannel flat sheets.

Approximate Time: 14 days



For a picnic sized quilt that measures 79 x 79 inches, cut 400 circles from denim and 400 squares from flannel.

Join 4 circles and sew square centers in, sewing the "scallops" down in a zig-zag stitch to secure.

I make blocks and find it easier in joining the pieces later as the quilt becomes heavier. This quilt has no batting.

It weighs 5 lbs. and is quite warm for summer or winter.

Machine wash.

A lot of work, but very rewarding. Very pretty and only 5lbs?
Thanks for sharing.

This is such a beautiful quilt. I have a hard time with instructions sometimes. Is there any way to get instructions with more pictures? Just not sure how to connect the circles. Have not been quilting very long and am learning on my own.


Thank You.

I've made two denim quilts in the past, and have been saving old jeans to make a third. I've also been saving flannel because I knew that I wanted to back it with the flannel somehow. Several ideas have been swirling around in my head, but I really like this one!


I've always wanted to make a cathedral window quilt, and although this one isn't traditional, I really love it. Thank you so much for the inspiration! I can hardly wait to finish my other projects so I can get started on it.
