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

My finished quilt size was 62.5″ x 75″ – so a large throw size essentially. But you could easily add more blocks to make yours bigger.


The quarter blocks started at 7″ and I trimmed all of mine down to 6 & 3/4". At this point, I made a style choice.

Make the diamond blocks.

You are not trying to match points here, these are meant to be ‘wonky’ diamond-ish shapes so don’t worry too much about that. So choose 4 quarter blocks that you like the look of together.


Before joining your quilt blocks to make rows we need to do more pressing. Did I mention pressing was important for this quilt?


Press open your seams on the back of your blocks and then also press from the front. If you take the time to press at this stage these blocks will come out much flatter than you would imagine.


I joined all my blocks into a full quilt top before adding the backing using the false back quilt-as-you-go method.
