I really like the colors in this quilt, although I am not sure that I would use denim fabric as I think the thickness of it would make it difficult to work with. But using some gray and black cotton fabrics would work and give you the same look. The colors give it a contemporary style even though it is an old quilt pattern. Very nice!

The weight of denim might make this somewhere between a regular cotton quilt and a weighted quilt for therapy.
