Sliced Coins Quilt Along + my favorite Gap Jeans

Yup.  That's right.  These were my favorite Gap Jeans.  Until I wore a hole in the knee playing cars and trains on the floor all day.  Wanna know the best part about them?


They're called "Long and Leans".  Which I think is hilarious, as I am neither "long", nor "lean". 


Anyway, 2 of the 5 pairs of jeans I've saved for no real reason are a part of this quilt-along.  It was really fun to take the scissors to them.  I'm not done cutting coins yet, but everything is coming from my stash.  We'll see where it leads.....!


And....I owe you a winner! 

The winner of the Sweetwater Custom Labels is....

  3. I love my long and lean pair too (I'm also neither long nor lean). Good news is that that style is still around in the stores. I'm wearing out another pair from the Gap and they aren't currently selling that style (grr...).

  4. That is hilarious! I love those jeans, too and I am soooo not long or lean. I may, in fact, have stubby legs. But they are the best :)

  5. Jeans! What a cool idea. I have a stack upstairs meant for a denim quilt. Someday...

  6. Wow, how creative to include those denim pieces. It's such a bummer when you have to give up a favorite pair of jeans, this is a nice way to keep them around!

  7. I hate to disagree, but as a mom with 2 very active boys, I hate to see a good pair of jeans get cut up. You really should have used those pretty pieces of fabric and made a patch. I use wonder under, iron it onto the wrong side of the "cute" fabric, then right side of some scrap denim, then wonder under that to the jeans, then sew them onto the pants. You could also just patch it with denim, but I like the colorful patches! Believe me, I've tried many times to quilt with denim. It's not the difficulty of sewing it, as the heavy physical weight. Use it sparsely, and you should be OK. You might want to skip the batting too, or just use a piece of flannel as the batting.

  8. LOL...I had a pair of long and lean jeans before, they were very comfy. I also finally had to throw my favorite pair of jeans away...I had used them for cleaning for over 2 years...both knees were shredded and they were starting to get holes elsewhere. =) Not a good thing. =) I never thought to use them in a quilt. Can't wait to see what you come up with!

  9. William Sledd says those are the best jeans for any girl. He says they'll make you look long & lean!
