I just made this quilt from old jeans. The pieces are sewn with 1" strips of black cotton material which means you don't have the heavy seams from the denim. This was backed with fleece for warmth (dd's request for a heavy, warm quilt). I am thinking of making a smaller one & trying to back it with a flannel-backed vinyl tablecloth. It would make a good picnic blanket, and the vinyl would keep it from getting damp on the ground.
