This quick denim quilt project is one I made to get myself out of a sewing ‘rut’.
It uses old jeans and leftover fabric strips.
I lost my drive and confidence with quilting and sewing projects a bit after I’d finished the mountains of sewn Christmas gifts I made this past year.
I had started loads of different projects after the New Year but I kept reaching a point with them where I would look at it and say ‘this is awful – I don’t want to finish it’.
So with this denim quilt what I did was start it intentionally as something I HAD TO FINISH.
It did not turn out perfect, but it did get finished! And as an exercise in unsticking me from my sewing slump it absolutely worked!
Here is how I made it.
