Pattern Details

Old pants make sturdy quilts that can endure rough treatments, in terms of usage (car, camping, etc.) or cleaning (washing machine and dryer). Also, using old pants is a fun way to recycle clothes that may not be wearable anymore, but that still have beautiful and usable pieces of fabric. My advice is to select pants of similar thickness to make one single quilt. I chose to use flannel for the back of these quilts, to add comfort and warmth. I did not insert any batting between the top fabric and the back fabric, because I found the quilt thick enough. The quilting is made of diagonal lines. My pattern includes detailed step-by-step instructions on how to deconstruct the pants, how to make squares and assemble them, how to make house appliques, how to add the back fabric and how to make the quilting. It also includes a layout for the squares, examples for house appliques, schemas and many pictures to guide you along the way.
