    I can see this being a great 'family' quilt, you know one where everyone sits on the couch cuddled up with a good movie on a cold night and warm & snuggly under this big 'ole quilt! Might make a few memories that way too!

    Flannel would be good, light weight and warm, as the denim should be heavy enough to keep your FAMILY warm.

    I love it, denim quilts are so unique and warm. There is something so cozy about denim. I’ve only recently heard about birthing quilts and that would work for your quilt. You could tie it. I like Laquita’s & Unique Creations’ ideas for you on how to use it. If you like camping it could be a camping quilt. Whatever you do with it, it will be a well loved quilt.

    Perfect for the beach, camping, kids playing in the yard. I think this is a great idea!

    Flannel it seems would be plenty enough for the quilt as denim is so heavy. This is wonderful!

    I saw one like this where the family had a large dog who insisted on sleeping on the bed during the day time. The quilt went to the floor all the way around and then doubled up so it would go under the pillows and them up over them.

    Sounds like this quilt will do the same. It would look very good in a log cabin type bedroom, with jeans pillows on a chair.

    If you're going to use it on the bed or as some kind of covering, I'd put flannel. But if you're going to use it at the beach or on picnics, I'd think flannel would pick up everything a lot more than a tighter weave fabric would.
