jean quilts

I am making jean quilts. Anyone else make these?

I am using 10 1/2 inch blocks of denim and flannel. I will sew the blocks together with a X from corner to corner. Then sew the blocks into strips, then the strips together. I will use a 1/2 seam so I can fray the hem. No quilting or tying.

I've made a rag quilt with flannel for the top and bottom and a layer of batting between. I cut 7 inch blocks, seamed so the raw edges were on top with a 1/2 inch allowance. Then cut the raggedy edges. That is the hardest part I think because it makes your hands sore. Don't try to do too much cutting at one time. Mine is different shades of browns, creams, beiges in plaids and stripes. Very country and homey looking. The more it is washed the nicer the fringe gets and the softer it becomes. It gets constant use. Mine is the size of a throw but with the amount of jeans you have it sounds as if yours will be bed size. Good luck with it and and don't stress your arm and booby muscles.

Joyce right now I have a file on the computer with my ideas. I did start to cut up one pair of jeans but stopped. I want to buy a washable marker. I have the measurements to make full, queen and throw quilts. That is as far as I have gotten.
