Denim Rag Jeans Quilt Special Notes

Before you jump in to this project, there are a few things you should know. First off, work out the size Quilt you would like to make. You can use an existing rug that you have as a size template.

The type of denim you’re using whilst not important, you can even use a combination of different types and colors, needs special attention if stretch denim.

The Creator of this Tutorial, Instructables user sjolly2, says that if you’re planning to use stretch denim, be sure that you don’t pull it too tight as it will fray.
