As I mentioned before, I made seven quilts last fall (for Christmas). First, I made three quilts for boys, with 6″ squares. After, I made two quilts for girls, with 91/2″ squares. Then, I made two quilts for men, again with 91/2″ squares.

Just like the previous quilts, those two are made with old pants. My spouse’s pants. Thick jeans of various colors. As you may guess, my spouse received one quilt for Christmas. Now, he can sleep with his pants…

    • Thank you, Linda! Isn’t making quilts with denim a rewarding activity? I like to sew appliqués to add extra interest. I’m happy to read that it inspired you.

  1. You have made something beautiful out of discarded clothing. They look so comfortable and warm, and of course the boats are inspired, it all just works. Wonderful.

    • Thank you, Lorna! I just couldn’t throw all that jeans fabric away. The quilts were indeed fun to make and I find that repurposing clothes is very rewarding.

  2. I really, really like this quilts!
    and the boats detail are really fun!
    it’s a pitty that you didn’t hang the quilt and take a full picture, they really deserve it!

    • Thank you! I didn’t hang them to take the pictures because I finished them on December 23. The following day, I was going away and only had like 30 minutes to photograph seven quilts. On top of this, it was a very gloomy day. 🙁
