Recycled Denim Quilt

By:

2 Comments

The Recycled Denim Quilt is a great way to use recycled old blue jeans. This pattern provides tips for ripping old jeans into rectangles for handmade denim quilts. This quilt is an especially good way to use material from jeans that are stained or ripped and can no longer be worn. If you love denim quilts but can't bear to part with your comfy old jeans, rescue some denim from the thrift store! Quilts made from old jeans are environmentally friendly and super warm!

Jeans can be pretty heavy in a large quilt. Did full size quilts that way in the late 70s and the quilts need a wheelbarrow to carry them. I concentrate on using dress weight denim for least half the material in a denim quilt. I do use lots of thrift shop jeans when they're really cheap and have cute pockets I an use for embellishments. I sometimes just buy a pair of jeans just for the pockets and recycle the rest. Also Garage sales sometimes have better prices for denims here in Florida. Beware of jeans with too much lycra and excessive stretch. I mostly buy those for pockets only. Jennie D

I have been making jean quilts for awhile now, as trying to make all the grandkids one. I have used the block system. But I like this idea and sounds easier as apposed to cutting. I do decorate mine quits with simple applique, buttons, cotton pick fabric and so forth. My next one is for a girl who likes horses. I love being able to save the patterns from this site and not having to print them all. Thanks! KayD
