This is a denim and fleece quilt I made about 8 years ago. Its really easy to do and you don’t have to worry about hems, or fraying as demin looks good when its frayed. Its quite heavy as its denim and so is great for outdoors. This is a link that gives you instructions on how its made:www.equilters.com/library/jeans/jeans_gallbaros.html.
The quilt is basically lots of circles all sewn together in rows to make squares. Then you sew all the ‘flaps’ down with a zigzag stich and this creates a funky pattern on the back of the quilt too.
Lots of different denim, I collected and chopped up old denim jeans. And inside each denim circle i used fleece, but you can use any fabric.
