There are lots of ideas out there, I love the rag quilts made from jeans

Use a denim needle. Rag quilts seem to be the most popular way to go

I sewed the blocks wrong side together, backed it with flannel, birthed it top stitched around the outer edge and embroidered snowflakes in the blocks, anD then washed and dried it.Thanks for asking.

I used 7.5 or 8" squares, can't quite remember and sewed them up. Backed with flannel, no batting. Easy peasey. I bound it with plain navy cotton. Very durable and great for the kids to drag around.
