I’ve been collecting worn out jeans for at least a couple of years and I’ve finally got enough to make a quilt. My plan is to sew 6 inch squares backed with felted jumpers and blanket. The great thing about this is I can quilt each square and then sew the whole top together.
It turns out there was quite a lot of planning needed as I had to have a pattern. I’m not a random kind of person.I’ve ended up with 9 by 13 squares – a slightly odd amount. That’s 117 in total, so then I started cutting up wool. Despite having loads of blankets and jumpers I still didn’t have all the colours I wanted so ended up dyeing a few extras.
This is the layout I finally picked after experimenting for ages and going back to my stash to get yet another colour several times.
I’ll post later when it’s done.
