Denim And Pink Recycled Quilt

Here's another denim craft to make. I love to recycle. Fun to recreate lovely things. I made this out of old jeans and feed bags. The one side the seams do not show, the other side they do and are cut with a scissors and washed in order to make it fringe more. The one solid pink square on the side that has all printed blocks and denim was a mistake.

After I made the whole thing and laid it out, I noticed the mistake. I took it all apart in that row and put a pink print square there to make it correct. Call me a perfectionist. I don't care. It had to be fixed. LOL!

Did you know that the Amish always have a "mistake" in their quilts, or so it is told, because they do not want to offend God, since only He can make something perfect.

I would have done the same thing too. Although I am interested in the Amish belief too. But then my sewing there is always something a "mistake". But I have blocks all cut out for a quilt, I started a trial piece and the machine seemed to get gummed up real quick.

I bought heavy jean needles, do you have any tips? I would love to make the quilt (now that winter is halway over, my DD will be warm NEXT year!).

What a beautiful quilt. I like the pastel pink and blue colors together. And the denim must make it very warm and cozy.

Pretty quilt. I am a fabric hoarder and I believe somewhere in my stash I still have feedbags, (years ago feed was put in fabric print feedbags, my grandmother use to make me summer tops out of them)
