I have made two of these quilts and my daughter is now making one for herself. It is fun to add the fancy pocket designs that many jeans have. And by all means use other colors if you like to your quilt. Jeans are not all blue. I have added green, white, purple, black, tie-dyed and acid washed. Then denim is a very durable fabric and is also heavy enough so that the wind will not blow it around on your picnic or at the beach.
These quilts are fondly called “Quillows.” They are made with an attached pocket which allows the whole blanket to be folded. In this way the “Quillow” can be folded into a cushion during the day and can be unfolded to become a blanket at night.
A great way to make a memorable quilt baby blanket gift is to get the whole family in on it. Each family member can make a square or two. You can use cloth markers to inscribe special messages from each member. You can choose to have everyone work on the same type of squares or you can have a mix and match baby quilt with a variety of square patterns. Both are lovely.
Blanket Quilt For each block you want to make also cut a five-sided piece of solid fabric. Make the sides angular, not parallel. Don’t make it too big or too small roughly about a ninth of the block (like a tic tac toe pattern on the muslin foundation square). It will serve as your crazy, off center middle of your design.
The cold, damp nights were particularly tough to get through with any kind of true rest. The warm quilt material was a welcome protection and security from the drafty old colonial houses and they quickly became popular.
For a crazy quilt, large or small, you should work on a square or rectangle of muslin or plain fabric. Working 12″ or smaller is recommended so that the piecing is easier to handle.
Lay out of the quilt: Lay the quilt backing out on a flat surface (such as a bed) and then place the rows sewn together on top of it. This way you can visually see How To Quilt (Letusbookmark.Com) long to make your rows and also see how you would like to arrange these rows. After you have decided – sew these rows together. Iron the seams open.
