    I love my denim quilt. It is the heaviest quilt that own. My denim quilt is one that my granny made from my grandpas overalls. It has flannel or some thin batting in it. The denim is sewed in strips and the quilt is tied with red yarn instead of quilted. This quilt has been thru the mill and washed numerous times. It still looks great. I wish I could ask her more questions about the construction, but those details are lost to me now.
    What a small, wonderful world we quilt in!

    INteresting, but I had to cringe when she cut the "seat" part... I use that part to make jean purses!

    I LOVED this tutorial! I had similar questions about backing, batting, etc. I am brand new to quilting, and would LOVE to make this - I'm thinking maybe a quilt-as-you-go project??

    Re: Jet4361's post - my daddy was a farmer, and when he passed, I'm sure my mom got rid of a TON of old overalls. What I wouldn't give to have them back now!!!

    I just recently finished a denim quilt for my husband. I decided not to put batting in it as I thought it would be plenty warm without it but now I'm wishing I had. The reason being is you can feel the seams thru the backing. He doesn't care, he'll still use it but if I was to make another one, I would put something in between so make it softer on the back.

    It's really neat because I can look at the quilt and point out which piece of jean belongs to who in my family. My LAQ also stitched his name randomly on the quilt.

    Methinks it is a token of healthy and gentle characteristics, when women of high thoughts and accomplishments love to sew; especially as they are never more at home with their own hearts than while so occupied. ~Nathaniel Hawthorne, The Marble Faun, 1859

    I really like cropped t shirts and jeans; highly warm and fashionable. Street apparel and glam grunge is so neat lately.I love this style, I will totally going to own one this season.
