FIRST PROJECT OF 2016 - JEAN QUILT TOP

I wanted to make 3 patchwork jean quilts for awhile now.  I have had some old pairs of jeans stacked up in my craft room, some were from my household and some were given to me by friends. Last Tuesday I cut all the jeans into useable strips and I used my Accquilt Go machine and my 6-1/2" die strip cutter to make these strips.
 

The same day I then used my 6-1/2" square template and cut the strips into 6-1/2" squares.


On Friday I sewed up this quilt top together, the quilt top is 8 squares x 12 squares which means I used 96 squares.  I have another 20 squares left over to go towards the next quilt, however I will need to acquire some more pairs of jeans, I was thinking of visiting to some op shops and I make pick up some cheap ones.




Cheers
Kaylee
