Denim Circle Rag Quilt Pattern


This pattern will be shipped to you via USPS.

With the Denim Circle Rag Quilt pattern you can make a “faux cathedral windows” quilt entirely from Recycled Denim Jeans!

*Why “faux”? This quilt has the appearance of cathedral windows but does not use this technique.

This quilt uses a simple construction method and it is "quilt as you go" so after you’ve sewn the last stitch, you’re done! No sending this quilt off to the quilter!

-Makes the PERFECT memory quilt.
-Keep your college bound son/daughter close with a quilt made from their jeans.
-Combine the whole families’ jeans and make a “traveling quilt”. (I know someone who did this!)
-Welcome a new baby with a play mat made from his/her’s parents jeans.
-PERFECT stadium or picnic quilt!

*I HIGHLY recommend using 100% cotton jeans. Cotton frays much better than stretch jeans!
