Julian’s Jeans

Quilt in progress made from the outgrown jeans of my son.

Quilt in progress made from the outgrown jeans and pants of my son.

Inspired by the tiny log cabin strip piecing of Completely Cauchy, I woke up a few weeks ago to start on this. While not the beautiful silk fabrics she uses, I challenged myself to make this from the vast cache of old denim I have on hand. Each of the strips in the center are cut at 1″, and finish at 1/2″.  This is about 40″+ square so far and I hope to grow it to a twin sized quilt. I’m not sure how I will quilt it – It’s very heavy so far!
