For the past few years I have been collecting old jeans in hopes of making a rag quilt. This is how I made it.
|Cut jean material in 7 in squares.|
|I had enough to make 150 squares.|
I only use 70 to make this quilt.
I made it
7 squares x 10 squares.
|Cut flannel material in 7 inch squares.|
Next I ironed the jean and flannel and put
them wrong sides together.
|Lay out your rows so it is pleasing to the eye.|
|Sew corner to corner on each square.|
|Sew your squares into rows, flannel sides together.|
I ironed the seems down to make it easier
to sew the rowes together.
|Sew your rows together, mathcing seams.|
After it is sewed them together I sewed a 1/2 inche stitch around the endge of the quilt.
|With sharp scissors cut slits into ALL seams.|
Make sure not to cut into the stitching.
Cut around the edge of the quilt.
|The edge will look like this.|
Now take your quilt to a laudrymat and wash and dry it. You could do this at home if you watch the washer and grab all the strings that WILL come out/off in the wash. Then when it is in the dryer check your lint trap every five minutes or so and clear it out. Then it will be FINISHED!
|It is super cozy!|

I enough material left over to make one more. Maybe a Christmas present???.........
