Blue Jeans Quilt
This was the easiest thing in the world.
I'd been saving old jeans forever, but if you really want to make this and haven't saved them, try going to your thrift store on quarter day. Look for larger sizes.
Cut your old jean pieces into 6x6' squares.
Sew them, wrong sides together, into strips (I used 12 squares per strip).
Sew the strips together (I used 12 strips for a total of 144 squares).
Since this was heavy enough, and there are no seams inside, I didn't need to use batting on this quilt.
Put the backing on, leaving a 5/8' seam allowance. Roll that over and stitch the binding down. Tie it with coordinating embroidery floss (I used red, dark blue, and light blue). Wash it & trim down some of the denim raveling, and voila!
When you take pictures of yours, try not to get the Sunday paper in the pic ;)
