first let me say i really enjoy reading everything on this board.
i could really use your help as i know everyone has such terrific ideas and skill.
i am trying to organize a quilting bee with my co-workers making quilts from old jeans. we will be making them for charities, such as salvation army, family and children services or the women's shelter.
i need patterns or ideas to make inexpensive, very easy and fast quilts. most of my co-workers will have very limited sewing experience.
also do we need to use cotton thread or would it be ok to use a less expensive thread.
any help with the above would be greatly appreciated.
also can anyone tell me how to cut up the jeans to get the most fabric out of it.
thank you in advance for your help.
