    Ideas for a pattern

    We moved and FINALLY I have unpacked and found spots for my sewing and crafting supplies and machines. Any ideas for a denim quilt? I have lots of colors that I bought at a sale. I would like to use 3 or 4 colors in a block or a rectangular block.

    Yay, may you have many years of happy memories in your new home. What about a rail fence pattern?? Lots of possibilities for that.

      We have a Mormon thrift shop in town where they are selling denim quilts made with 8 inch squares of denim pieced together then seams pressed open and a narrow strip of plain or printed cotton is sewn over the raw seams. I wish I knew how to add a picture. So they are just that one layer and quite attractive. The denim is cut from old jeans so it is all shades.

        Since denim is thick, making seams even thicker,
        a simple, large pieces block works the best.
        Usually squares works the best.
        Denim also makes for a very heavy quilt,
        so keep this in mind when you decide on use,
        and how big you want to make your quilt.
        Denim quilts usually do not have batting.

          Sewluvit, I see that you are from Saskatchewan too.

          Just the pattern I need. Most of my pieces would be perfect for a square of that size with little waste. Thanks.

              Denim quilts are pretty and toasty warm. Here is a link to photos for some ideas.

                How about the denim circle rag quilt. No batting and when you've sewn the top it's done. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W_hKEDmxQwM
                Quilters never die, they just go batts.

                  I have made a couple of these already. Grandchildren love them.
