Now that I have an Accuquilt GO and an 8" rag die, I want to use 2 pieces of fabric I bought in the late '90's in a rag quilt. The fabrics are identical but for the background colors. I think it's brushed denim, but am not sure (it says Mayar Silk, Inc. on the selvedge). Because I only have a little over a yard of each color and I don't want the 2 colors butted up to each other, I thought I would use blue denim to tone down the bright colors and add to the size.
This is where my question comes in: I have a varied selection of denim legs cut off of worn-out jeans. This leg denim is still in very good condition, but much of it is pretty stiff and/or thick, whereas the colored brushed denim is soft. Do you think it is a bad idea to combine these 2 fabric types in one rag quilt? Rather than make a mess out of it, I could just buy some brushed denim fabric.
