Making My Reversible Denim Quilt From Used Jeans

This denim quilt has been on my upcycling bucket list for some time to make a big quilt picnic blanket from all my old jeans. I’ve finally done it!

There are several things you should consider doing differently when making a denim quilt out of your old jeans.

What do you have to do differently for a Denim Blue Jeans Quilt?

Denim Needle. First up and probably most important you need to get some denim needles.

Batting or No Batting. I looked around and found a polyester quilt batting that was advertised as being ‘low loft’ which in quilting means not too thick or heavy.

Seam Allowance. Another thing I read in researching how to make my denim quilt was that you should use a 1/2″ seam allowance.

Pressing Open Seams. What I did do differently with my seams for my jeans quilt was to press the seams open instead of to one side.

I have another post about how to cut up your jeans for sewing and upcycling projects to make sure you get the most useable fabric.
