Item details

The Blue Giant Quilt pattern is available to download automatically as a zip file at after your payment is processed.
Zip files must be opened on a computer first (either Mac or PC) and then the individual pdfs can be used on any usual platform/reader. If you only have a tablet available, please contact me after purchase and I will send you all the individual pdfs.

Due to the size of the pieces this pattern works more like a dress pattern than a typical quilt pattern, with pieces cut from a paper.

It is made up of 6 separate pdf files zipped into one:

- Copy shop print with seam allowance.
- Home print with seam allowance.
- Copy shop print for resizing.
- Home print for resizing.
- Piecing plan.
- The pattern itself

Inspired by a children's block toy, the giant star quilt front is made entirely from upcycled jeans.

The quilt top comes together in no time as the pieces are large.

The original quilt size is 85" (216 cm), but the pattern includes instructions and pattern pieces for resizing according to your preference or the jeans you have available. Of course, you can always choose to make the quilt from lengths of denim or other heavier-weight fabric too.

Included in the instructions are suggestions for back and binding, detailed diagrams for piecing your quilt, as well as tips and hints for undoing jean seams, choosing which jeans to use and spinning your seams for the star centre.

A percentage of profit from every pattern sold goes to women makers in developing countries.

Happy quilting!

Average review
Everything was just as it was described! Before I ordered the pattern, I asked Tara a few questions since I'm not the most advanced and experienced quilter. She answered immediately and put my mind at ease. I am preparing to print off the pattern and get busy on the quilt. I'm very excited about trying this pattern and believe I can create a quilt I can be proud of. Thank you so much Tara! I really appreciate your prompt response and your offer of help should I hit a snag along the way! Carla Hacker

Thank you for this pattern. I used it to make the center of a twin size jean quilt for my camper.

I had a hard time opening the pattern. The seller did communicate. I will say that you must be advanced to create this pattern so if you are a beginner you may want to look for something much easier.
