Update: The pattern is complete!
You can purchase a copy at my Etsy Shop:
I love the way it turned out. I thought I liked it before I clipped it but I really like it now that it's been clipped and washed.
I've made this type of quilt in the past and this time I decided to "prep" the raw edges prior to washing and drying. I've noticed that sometimes these kind of quilts need to be washed several times to get the full fraying effect.
So, this time I "brushed" the raw edges with a hard bristled plastic brush- think of your toliet bowl brush- the kind with really stiff bristles (I didn't use a toliet bowl brush, however!).
Here's what the quilt looked like as I progressed. I scrubbed the edges backward and foreward before it ever went into the washing machine. It was really frayed and oh-my-gosh it sure shed!
It seemed to do the job, though, because it came out of the dryer (first time) perfectly frayed!
I just love this type of quilt and I love that I am using up someone's discarded jeans to make a whole new creation.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
