My sister and sister in-law have been making quilts from recycled denim for a long time and I always wanted to give it a try. First I washed all the jeans and then it took four afternoons to cut them apart. This is after I had given a bag to my sister. They are separated now into light, med, dark and gray/black colors. Hard to believe what I started with is going to fit in one large bin after cutting (separate box for pockets). Below is my first project attempt.
Here are some of my sister's denim quilts. Really fun stuff. She quilts runners on her machine and ties most of the quilts.
