Amish Style Jeans Quilt
Patterned after an Amish quilt on display at the Smithsonian Institute - though I doubt this one will ever be as famous.
This quilt is made from recycled blue, black and turquoise jeans, some checkered pants, and red fabric I found at a second hand shop for about $1.00.
I've taken an interest in jeans quilts and quilts from other recycled fabrics. I'm tired of buying things at the store, finding they were made in China and that they fall apart the first time I wash them. My quilts are designed to please the eye, keep you warm and to last a long, long time.
