I made a similar denim quilt before we were married, thirty six years ago. Over the years, it became worn and torn. My idea was to take it apart and use the pieces to re-make it into a new quilt, but when I took it apart, it disintegrated into shreds. A few of the denim pieces were redeemable, but most of this quilt is newly cut from old jeans and scraps from my fabric collection. The old quilt was heavy and warm. Not sure why, but this one is lightweight, a good summer quilt. I switched it out today with the heavier winter quilt, ready for the warmer nights of the season.
