Easy Denim Quilt Blocks

This is a fun idea for repurposing your old blue jeans. This denim quilt block also uses quilting scraps, left over the ends of quilt binding strips.

Materials Needed:

– Denim Squares – Long fabric strips – Thread – Batting squares

Prepare your Denim & Batting Squares

Cut your batting and denim squares to the same size. You don’t need backing fabric yet as this block is designed for the false backing quilt-as-you-go method.  

Pick your Quilting Scraps

You need one strip per block. I love mixing quilting cotton with denim, it gives a great pop of color and a different texture.

Quilt 3-4 evenly spaced lines through both the denim and batting.  We add the scraps later! I used a 12wt variegated thread and a 4.0 stitch length.

Quilting the Denim Blocks

Adding the Scraps and more Quilting!

To add the scrap fabric strips or leftover binding strips you can try one of two methods. I used a combination of both methods for my blocks.

Trim your block down to your desired size. 

Trim your Quilt Blocks

Repeat for as many blocks as you like for the quilt size you want to make and arrange so the strips form diamonds or make the layout totally random and crazy!
