Upcycling old blue jeans into cozy quilts since 2003

Addie & Jean Quiltworks is a three generation trio based in Western Canada: Grandma Jeanne, daughter Vivian and grand-daughter Brynn (Addie). All items are handmade and all items are made by us!

Our story begins in 2003 when Vivian made her first denim rag quilt. We still have it and after dozens of washings it’s even softer and cozier than the day it was made. Grandma Jeanne loved the quilt so much that she decided quilting would be a great way to keep herself busy after retirement; it has now become a full time hobby. She asks everyone she knows (and even some she doesn’t) to save their old blue jeans for her, she often finds bags of them on her doorstep. Grandma Jeanne even made a 19,841 piece, award winning quilt and then made a second one just for fun!

A few years ago she was evacuated from her home due to the threat of a forest fire. She had 10 minutes to leave and she grabbed her quilts and sewing machine and forgot her clothes! Thankfully, her home was saved and she donated 20 quilts to the firefighters and emergency workers as a thank you.

We are best known for our rustic farmhouse style rag quilts made from 10 to 12 pairs of upcycled blue jeans. Nothing makes us happier than when a quilt finds a home that will cherish it. We would love to create a quilt for you!
