How to Make a Quilt-As-You-Go Denim Quilt 

(also uses quilting scraps!)

I love denim quilts made from old blue jeans. They are great when used as a picnic blanket or just as a nice heavy warm quilt.

In this denim quilt tutorial, I am going to show you how I join and assemble a jean quilt using quilt-as-you-go.

How Many Quilt Blocks Should You Make?

To make the same size quilt as I did you need to make 120 of what I am calling ‘quarter blocks’.

Step 1. Making the ‘Diamond’ Blocks

Choose 4 quarter blocks that you like the look of together and sew the two top quarter blocks together, right to right, followed by the bottom two.

Step 2. More pressing!

Before joining your quilt blocks to make rows we need to do more pressing.

It’s always a good idea to lay your blocks out somewhere like on a floor or a design wall to test out your layout before joining your blocks into rows.

Step 3. Quilt layout.

Once you are happy with your layout pair your rows into sets of two, then proceed with sewing them. I put wonder clip on the blocks to hold them together.
