Blogger’s Quilt Festival :: Fall 2012

It's time once again for the fall Blogger's Quilt Festival hosted by Amy of Amy's Creative Side.

I am entering my blue jeans quilt (note the super creative name).  I made it using the tutorial for a ragtime quilt from Amanda Jean of Crazy Mom Quilts.  This is the first rag quilt I've made.

I used old jeans, some white denim, and some fabric from a friend's stash.


The backing was made from flannel scraps from other quilts I made, mostly baby quilts.

  

I love the way the backing peeks through on the front and gives it just a little color.

This turned out great! I haven't tried a rag quilt yet but I do have a stack of old jeans needing a purpose...

Oooh how cute is that floral denim!

Makes me want to make a rag quilt. I have a stash of old jeans too. I mostly use them for aprons but a quilt may be just the ticket.

Love your quilt. I have a stash of old jeans too. I usually make them into aprons but I think a rag quilt is just the ticket. Great job.

Love rag quilts too. I really love those little bits of colour showing through Too. I like the way you have used the multi colour denim for the border. Fantastic quilt.

What fun! A rag quilt is a thing I have not tried but always they look so snuggly, just like yours! I love the cool front and flashes of colour on the back. :-)

I love to use denim - it is the way to picture "comfort". And yours looks so great. Thanks for sharing!

This looks like it would be an awesome quilt to snuggle up with. I love how scrappy it is, front and back!
