Jean Rag quilt

Project Description

What are you most proud of? Cutting apart all the jeans. ;P What advice would you give someone starting this project? The quilt gets heavy. I broke 4 needles on the last few rows from the quilt pulling the needle into the metal plate. Make sure the quilt is supported as you are working on it.

What you will need

  • Denim and flannel

Q&A with DaintyLady

honeybee design asked:
I make rag quilts out of flannel fabric. I have found the best sissors are actually made for cutting rag quilts. They are short with red handles. I got mine at JoAnn's in the quilting tools section. Great idea usiing jeans!
DaintyLady answered:
Thank you. I used the clippers that Jenny suggested. The Fiskars. I got mine at JoAnns to with my 50 off coupon. They were great! Had the quilt clipped in one night and my hand never got tired.
