Jean Quilt with Homespuns

I am a blue jean girl. My fav outfit is a comfortable T-shirt and a pair of blue jeans. But eventually, those jeans wear out, but a lot of the fabric is still usable and durable. I've been saving ideas for things to make from them when I'm done wearing them on Pinterest. https://www.pinterest.com/annsymes/forever-in-blue-jeans/

This quilt starts with circles of blue jean fabric (this quilt features all used jeans) and squares of fabric for the centers.

 There's also a square of batting, so this quilt has a bit of weight to it and warmth.

 This would make a great picnic blanket.

 Or a blanket for the cabin or for on the deck on a cool Canadian evening.

Black and Blue Jeans
 Some of the blue jeans were black and the rest blue which gives a different look than if they were all one color.

In hindsight, I should have spaced the black pieces a little more randomly, but this quilt is a quilt as you go and I didn't give any thought to that when I started. By the time I did think about it, it was too late to go back and change things.

If you want to make your own, the pattern is from Fons & Porter here. Or if you don't want to wait until you have enough blue jeans, this one is available for purchase here!

Next time! :)
