Step 4

Pinch a few pins on the patchwork blocks to keep them on their place while you work on them.

Step 5

Make big running stitches on the patchwork blocks to keep the blocks on their place while you work on the applique, I like to do this step as I found the running stitches keep any piece of fabric on its place without moving while I do the applique, pins can often get lose and the prices of fabric can easily move.

Step 6

Make the applique of the patchwork blocks on the jeans, you need to follow the steps to do the applique.

Fold the 1/4” seam inside and make small stitches on the edge of each side of each one of the patchwork blocks.

Step 7

Make some quilting stitches on the patchwork blocks, you can decide whether to make the hand quilting or making it with your sewing machine.

You can do the quilting with a beige or off white thread or pick another color to do the quilting, both ways will look nice.

Once you finished to make the quilting, you can remove the running stitches.

Voila! your jeans looks amazing and they are ready!
