Ladybug stipple quilt

I haven't posted in a few days, and since it is the end of the school year and I'm a teacher, I thought I'd talk about a quilt I made a few years ago. This quilt is a recycle project of old jeans. My family actually wore these jeans! I appliquéd the lady bugs onto the jeans and pieced them together. (This is by no way a perfect quilt. It was an earlier quilt.) this was one of my first stipple quilts. I'm still learning about this technique. Anyway, let me know what you think.


  1. It's amazing! I'm completely overwhelmed by the idea of quilting, just working with a massive piece of fabric is enoug to scare me! I'd love to try it one day but I'm not sure I'd have the patience to finish...

  2. Lovely! I recycle jeans to make bags for a charity I support. It's a lovely material to work with, and great if the jeans in your quilt all belonged to your family. Did you add any batting to the quilt? I have a denim quilt in progress and haven't yet decided if I am going to use batting.
    I'm a teacher too, but in the UK. We still have seven weeks or so till the end of the school year...
