Thanks for the denim quilt pattern. I've been saving my families old jeans for years with this in mind, but have never found a pattern. I just stumbled onto your site and I love it. I made this quilt (my first quilt ever!) in just 2 evenings. One to cut out squares and one to sew and clip it. The only thing I didn't have patience for was washing it more than once :), so I informed them it would get better with every wash. I added embroidery in a couple of squares since I work at EmbroidMe, to personalize it. Thanks again. P.S. I'm in Bakersfield, California. Rebecca
Hi Helen, Thanks for the denim rag quilt pattern. I doubled the size to make it a picnic quilt. I used a fishing motif and my 33 year old son loved it. Now I am making them for my other 3 sons and my husband. I've been collecting used jeans all year and now have enough. Thanks so much for sharing. Also, the hint of using denim snips was really helpful. I have a son who spent two years on a mission for our church in Australia. He loved the country and the people. That makes this pattern even more special. He is in Iraq serving in the military at the present time. Thanks again for your help, Julie
Hi Helen, I’ve just finished my rag quilt, thanks to your helpful instructions. It is my first quilt and has brought me much joy and excitement. Have a great day! Trudy

Quilt is so "easy" -- and cheap --
to make. All you need are 6-8
pairs of old jeans and
of flannel fabric. The more variety
in jean colours, the more interesting your result will be.
thing is that you don't even have to wash
the flannel fabric. Infact,
it is very important that you
don't" wash the fabric. This means you
started straight away!
all, these rag quilts make perfect "masculine" quilts so, they make
gift for husbands, brothers, uncles, sons, newphews, grandfathers
grandsons. I made this denim
rag quilt for my husband and he just loves
quilting is an old fashioned favorite. The
raggy seamed-quilts have become extremely popular in home decor in
recent times. Rag
quilts serve as
quilts and TV blankets, as well
as picnic or travel
rugs and are just perfect to "snuggle" under, while
reading your favorite book or magazine.
use almost any fabric that will "fray"
for your rag quilt. Rag
quilts can be made from flannel, homespun, polar fleece, new denim
or as in
this example, recycled jeans. It's best
to choose fabric with a loose
type of weave that
ravel and fray easily. Using
a variety of flannels or homespuns and combining
different plaids will
give a great country look.
nice quilt can be made with old Jeans on one
and flannel on
the back as shown in this example. I chose
to use old jeans because of the great warmth
durability provided. If
or new denim there is no
need to add batting. The
is plenty "warm" enough.
this "raggy strip" technique, the blocks in
quilt are sewn with the raw edges
This means the seams are
featured on the front of these simple quilts, instead of
the quilt is complete, it is washed. The
raw-edged seams become "frayed" and "fluffy",
making lines of fuzzy detailing. The result is a delightful three
quilts are completed "quickly" because
the front and back are stitched at the same time. So,
the front is finished, the
whole quilt is ready to
enjoy! This quilt is very cosy and warm - a perfect Campfire
Rag Quilt made from "recycled" jeans.
