Quick to Make Improv Denim Quilt
This quick denim quilt project is one I made to get myself out of a sewing ‘rut’.
It uses old jeans and leftover fabric strips.
– Batting – Quilt back
– Denim jeans
– Moda scrap bag jelly
I started with a stack of 7″ denim squares from old jeans. Then I went for bright aquas and reds with some coordinating lighter strips thrown in too.
Adding some color.
Once I’d added my strips to all my squares I tried various layouts on the floor.
I laid out all my rows and part rows and then measured the gaps. I added a 1/4 seam all around and cut out the pieces of denim I needed to fill it in.
Sewing Rows & Filling Gaps
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.
