Denim quilt...Pinterest win! Cut old jeans in strips the same width (mine are 7 in.). They can be various lengths. Sew into rows, then sew the rows together. Sew your quilt to the length and width you want, and cut off any excess. Sew your batting (or an old flannel sheet) to the back of your denim, trim to the same size. You can then use another old sheet for your backing. This is a turned quilt. After you've attached the back sheet, turn and top stitch the edges. Easy!
