I had been quilting for over 25 years and began piecing this quilt in 2015, before we suddenly decided to move to Florida!...

At that point it was this size, so I said, "We won't need any more quilts in Florida!" and stopped right where I was. The remainder of the pieces I'd cut wound up on the back (Which made it a LOT more work to hand quilt.

I just finished quilting it last night.

It is totally made from old jeans, denim skirts and dresses. You can see where I let the skirt hem down on some of the pieces!

I'd already tossed some of the labels when it occurred to me that it would be neat to re-apply them on the quilt.

gift quilt
by: Frances

I made a quilt for my grandson to take to university, and collected jeans from all the family. Later, every contributor was able to sign the quilt label. I also included five squares with pockets, and used each pocket to hold a gift card: coffee shops; grocery cards; even a gift card for the movies. Made a great gift, and he loved it.

Way to Go!

Great job!

I love recycled denim quilts. I've got one in progress and I know how much work goes into one of these as denim can be a real bear to work with in every aspect of quilting.

I really like the way you made the denim work for your design. Your quilt is unique and beautiful.

Thanks for sharing!

Your quilt is gorgeous, and I bet it is not only pretty but very warm too. Love the detailing on it and the labels add some flare as well.
