Here is a great way to re-use those old jeans. Laura Coia from Sew Very Easy shows us how she stitched this fantastic quilt with seven pairs of jeans, one charm pack, and some flannel sheets. No batting is required for this quilt as the layers of cotton, denim, and flannel are quite warm and heavy on their own. Laura also used Premo Soft thread, you can get it here; http://sew-whats-new.net/glidethread
