Quilting superstar Amy Barickman from Indygo Junction is here to team up with Jenny for a new tutorial, the Denim Strip Quilt! This is a great quilt for beginners because it looks so much more difficult than it is, so you can show off your skills without pulling your hair out! It doesn’t even require binding (though you could absolutely construct it like a traditional quilt with binding)!
Amy Barickman’s Crossroads Denim fabrics are a dream to work with! They are so soft and come in so many gorgeous colors that you’ll definitely be making a list of all the things you can make with it!
This quilt was inspired by this pillow that Amy had made and we just had to turn it into a quilt!!

So this is an AMAZING, fun and fast way to make a block, that has the look of a “string quilt” block or an hourglass block. The cool thing about this idea is that you are able to either make it very matchy-matchy or you have the freedom to make it very random and scrappy. Their are also a lot of other ways to put it together, and you achieve a totally different look however you choose to lay it out!
All kinds of ideas are mulling around in my head of what else is possible with this technique. Jelly Rolls make this so easy, too! (I already have plans to piece one with honey bun strips.) I can’t wait to show you! I swear, once you try it you will be SO hooked.
Here is the ‘Main’ tutorial for the technique…..Oh man, you are gonna love it.
