Craftsy Block of the Month 2012 »
InstructionsIn this quilt top I used around 10 pair or blue jeans and 3 white/Tan jeans. Alternated the white block with darkest jean strips and the dark blue blocks with White strips. When sewing solid block together I purposely did not match up the blues and whites, I wanted the colors to mingle. I tried to get many different colors of blue/white on one block as possible.
Type of item: Home Decor
Style: Whimsical, Cute
Old Jeans repurposed for quilt top, Cotton Flannel for the bottom and quilt batting. Hand tied with yarn.
What was your inspiration?
I have a lot of jeans to work with. When the block of the month came around I just fell in love with the asterisks block. So here is my jean version.
What are you most proud of?
I knew it was going to be really cute but it turned out to be more beautiful then what I had imagined.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Don't forget to cut the block the right way, I made a mistake while cutting this out and my lines are not matching up the way the should... oops
Cut in half _ then the other half_ last cut X
