What materials did you use?
Old denim jeans and scraps from other quilting projects
Thanks for all the comments! I made the first one about 6 years ago so can't find the pattern but I believe some people here have helped out.
All I did was cut large circles of denim and mark a square in the middle, with corners touching the edge of the circle. Then the circles were stitched right sides together along the square markings. A patchwork square overtop a square of batting was inserted under the denim flaps and topstitched down. Had to use a heavy duty thread and needle to get through the layers of denim. Adding a square of batting beneath each square to add a bit of loft and warmth. Best to use old denim as it won't shrink and is soft and eases well.
A very sturdy quilt that washes very well - the one pictured here was a wedding gift as a picnic blanket.
I love this pattern and what you did with the denim, grand idea. I did see this before and just remembered. I saw it on Love Of Quilting and Liz Porter did this for a child's quilt with cars and such in the center. This is a very easy quilt, because it is a "quilt as you go". Before sewing the circles down on the square, you take them and sew them together on the RIGHT sides together, then fold each on down on the square. You can make your own circle using a plate, then make a square (each of the four corners has to be touching the outer circle. So simple, but absolutely striking when done. The fabric possibilities are endless.
Love this using denim. Amy Gibson's blog (she teaches Craftsy' Free Block of the Month class) has this patten. She did a Baby play mat using this easy technique. You can find it here: http://www.modabakeshop.com/2011/11/cathedral-window-baby-playmat.html Have fun!!
Here's a pattern that was used by a friend of mine. It made a beautiful quilt! http://www.equilters.com/library/jeans/jeans_gallbaros.html
