Made this for a friend from a few pairs of old jeans and shirts that had been in my stash for too long.
I cut strips from the jeans and stitched them to squares of thin cotton (backs of men’s shirts) semi-randomly. The shirts and jeans were different sizes so I ended up with big and small blocks.
I found some plain white cotton and figured out a layout. I used upholstery fabric as backing and folded it to the front instead of a traditional binding.
I used a pretty heavy batting so I decided to keep the quilting simple: straight lines horizontally and vertically.
