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.
– 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
