Default Denim string quilt

holdens-quilt-prequilting-640x480.jpgThis is a quilt made for our oldest grandson out of Papa's old denim jeans. He has seen it and is crazy about it.
Now to decide how to quilt it. It is pretty heavy. I will be using a midweight flannel backing and no batting. I will hopefully have it done by Christmas.
Thank you for looking.

I think I would either tie it - or stitch in the ditch along the white/light diagonal strips.

I love it!
