I finally finished my blue jean quilt it didn't take long to make the longest part was cutting the jeans up the rest just flew by. It needs a few more washings but I ran out of quarters and don't want to use my own washer.

Super cute Smiley I actually have a jean quilt in the works too using this pattern http://www.equilters.com/library/jeans/jeans_gallbaros.html I go to a bunch of garage sales this time of year and nearly every one has a bunch of jeans in the free pile!

Very nice and neatly sewn. My aunt used to make these and they were so heavy but so warm.

This is my first rag quilt with many more to come in the future. I have been using it at night and have to put my fleece blanket over or under it for warmth. After I have made a few more I might try putting a flannel backing on some of them.

Looks VERY good.
And sounds fairly easy to make too.
Great job!

That looks simply awesome! I have wanted to make a jeans beadspread for the longest time, using only the upper fronts (with the zipper), but have not been able to collect enough jeans - I might have to make one or two of your cool rag quilts.. great  Grin

I know I am completely backwards, but I love the back of it best Cheesy  I love the pale shades and how the different shades work together.  THis is such a fantastic idea!  I might have to do this with my son's pants.  He either outgrows them or wears through the knees faster than anything.

This quilt I used a 8 1/2 in square. The next one I'm working on is 6 1/2 inch squares and is for my oldest daughter I thought it might be cool to make it look like it has a J on it with some of the lighter or darker colored jeans. This quilt is very easy to make but a bit heavy when sewing together on the sewing machine. Very good beginners project.
