Jeans Quilts: Parts 2 and 3

My brother is the husband of one amazing woman and the father of three boys and 1 girl. In that order.

The three boys are all getting quilts from the Treble and Bass pattern from “All About Strips” by Susan Guzman.  Here is number 2.

The girl is getting a denim quilt, too, but using a different design.  I haven’t decided if I love it or not, but I think quilting will help give it more life.  It will be done with purple thread in an all over flower motif that matches the yellow and purple flannel back.

Fabric is pulled for number 4.

Getting there.

 

Jeans Quilt–Part 1

For a few years now, I have planned to make jeans quilts for my parent’s grandchildren.  For many years my mother saved my father’s old work jeans and has passed them down to me.

This is finally the year!  Here is the first top (of at least six planned).

The pattern is in the book “All About Strips” by Susan Guzman.  There are a few patterns in the book particularly suited to jeans quilts, as the sashing avoids the bulky, heavy seams that result when multiple pieces of denim meet.

I plan to make at least four of the quilts using this pattern (for my brother’s children).  It will take a while, but I’ve got time.  Hopefully they can be finished in time for our traditional Thanksgiving get together this year.
