Turn Your Old Blue Jeans into a Quilt

Here's a great way to make use of all your old blue jeans: turn them into a funky quilt! Although in quilting circles, this project would be labeled 'easy' it's still a significant project. Well worth the effort, considering the outcome. See the entire tutorial on All People Quilt dot com.

I'll definintely take pictures, because I love it! (I have a blue jeans thing anyway) I don't know what I'm going to use for backing, it might end up being something ugly because I refuse to buy anyhing new to make this so I might just piece together whatever I can find. Although I'm also looking to see if I have any old sheets. For the batting I'm using an old fleece blanket I had just stopped using because the edges started shedding.

I really like her look of yarn stitching, so if I can get a needle through there, I'm doing it! Although I think I might quilt a pattern of some kind of leaves or vine spreading across it.

You're kidding!?! I hope you post pics when you're done. I'd love to see it! Did you plan to use yarn as well? Maybe he/she used a cotton darning needle. (Big eyes & pointy tips.) What do you think you might use for your backing color??

I just started making this quilt earlier this week! The top is finished and I'm trying to find good scraps to put together for the backing. The person who created it, though, says that she quilted it with worsted weight yarn, and I cannot possibly figure out what kind of needle could get that through all these fabrics!
