Denim Prayer Quilt

I'm making a denim prayer quilt made from jeans that were donated to the ministry. The quilt is for a dear friend, that we've known for a long time.  He will be having open heart surgery in January 2013.

I follow this tutorial for denim quilts made from jeans.

Preparing to pin it.
(The colors look so different in natural light in the first photo and indoor light in this second photo.)

Beginning to quilt.
Using my new Machingers gloves for the first time!
Love them!

It's been awhile since I linked up to W.I.P. Wednesday at Freshly Pieced so I thought I'd join in this week! If you're visiting from there or are a follower thanks for stopping by!

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced



  1. What a great idea! It looks brilliant, have fun quilting!

  2. What a kind thing to make for your friend! Do you put batting in it? The last time I made a jeans quilt was many many years ago (before I was a quilter actually so it's tied rather than quilted) but it's held up so well and is very warm!

  3. What a wonderful use of denim! I'm sure the quilt will be loved!

  4. It came out very nice. It will be a great comfort to your friend. Hugs, Sis.

  5. I like the way the different shades look together. I really have to try that sometime -- we've definitely got the old jeans for it!

  6. I love the different denims together... a fabulous quilt. I've been wanting to make a rag rug denim quilt, to use as a picnic blanket, but I'm thinking that maybe a quilt like this would be better. Hmmm.... decisions, decisions.
