If you’ve got colorful old or outgrown denim taking up room in your closet—or access to a good thrift store or flea market—you can turn that unused fabric yardage into a durable one-of-a-kind blanket that your whole family will want to use! If you love your Levi’s, you’ll definitely want to add this gorgeous upcycled jeans quilt to your to-make list.
I’m so impressed by how beautifully this quilt turned out, and I’m delighted by the challenge of creating a color palette of simple yet bold color block stripes within the limitations of your closet/local garage sales/second-hand stores. It looks like such a fun project!
I could picture how this quilt would turn out in my mind, but the color palette was in the thrift store’s hands. I used 16 pairs of old pants (some thrifted, some my own), and I couldn’t be more thrilled with how it turned out.
Feeling inspired to stitch? (I think we probably all are!)
