Repurposing Denim Fabric Into Quilt Blocks

I decided to do a quilt-as-you-go denim quilt block that would let me enjoy the quilting and piecing in smaller batches.

This denim quilt block also uses quilting scraps, left over the ends of quilt binding strips.

Supplies Needed

– Denim Squares – Long fabric strips – Thread – Batting squares

Step 1

Prepare your Denim & Batting Squares. Cut your batting and denim squares to the same size.

Step 2

Pick your scraps. You need one strip per block. I love mixing quilting cotton with denim – it gives a great pop of color and a different texture.

Quilt the Denim Blocks. Quilt 3-4 evenly spaced lines through both the denim and batting. 

Step 3

Your quilting lines will go edge to edge – no need to leave space around the edges.

Adding the Scraps and more Quilting. You can try either stitch and flip, or fold under and top stitch.
