Improv Denim Quilt That's Quick to Sew

This quick denim quilt project is one I made to get myself out of a sewing ‘rut’.

With this denim quilt what I did was start it intentionally as something I HAD TO FINISH.

Supplies Used:

– Batting – Quilt back – Denim jeans – Moda scrap bag jelly 

I grabbed some jelly roll strips from my stash and chain pieced the pile of 7″ denim squares so that there was a strip of patterned fabric.

Step 1: Add some color. 

Step 2: Layout

Once I’d added my strips to all my squares I tried various layouts on the floor.

Step 3: Sewing Rows and Filling Gaps

I sewed my rows together as per the layout I had decided on. I laid out all my rows and part rows and then measured the gaps.

Step 4: Quilting

I used my walking foot and a denim needle and quilted straight horizontal lines across my quilt.

I used the offcuts of the backing from the top of the quilt and hand sewed it down to cover the exposed batting.

Step 5: Fix for a Short Quilt Back
