Another Fleece and Jeans Quilt!

In the past few months, I've made a lot of jeans quilts. I finished another one this week! 

This one is for my youngest son. He's the only kid that didn't have a fleece-backed-jeans-quilt yet.

So he's a happy guy. He's had his fleece blanket on his bed for a while, so I (finally) sewed up the jeans, and stitched them onto his fleece. 

As always, I've had fun with all the jeans-y details on the quilt. 

As usual, these are partly jeans we've used, and partly thrift-store jeans. (Love it when they have those 50-cent sales!) For a change, I decided to alternate big squares (cut at 13") with my usual small ones. 

For other jeans quilt history, click the "Jeans" label in the sidebar ... This makes my #5 jeans quilt for my kids ... plus I've made occasional other jeans quilts for gifts ... 

Anyway, now that each of the kids has a super-cozy, fuzzy fleece-and-jeans quilt ... for some reason, we're thinkin' that the grownups around here might need one ...

Working on that ... more details later, but here's a sneak peek ...

Finish It Up Friday is happening at Crazy Mom Quilts, and Sew and Tell Friday at AmyLouWho ... Links are below ...


Happy Friday to you!


  1. I love Jean quilts! Are your kids using them to snuggle with or on their beds?

  2. I love using up denim, too. I have only made one jeans quilt, though. Too hot in Houston for more.

  3. Neat! What needles did you use and how did that go? Easy? I need to use up some I cut up a while ago. Didn't think of fleece as backing. Want to make it look like a ticker tape quilt but overlap all the jean squares.

  4. With 2 boys, i have a ton of old jeans that I've been saving up. I really need to get busy!! Yours is great!

  5. I bet those are SO cuddly with the weight of the denim and the cozy fleece back. Great idea! I have a huge bin of jeans waiting for recycling... one of these days. lol

  6. how fun! i bet that is one warm quilt!

    thanks for linking up to finish it up Friday!
