I took all those old jeans and also a flat flannel sheet for the backing and used a pattern from a cereal box to cut them all into 7.25 x 7.25 squares intending to use the .25 as the seam allowance.
Then I took a denium square and a flannel square (wrong sides facing together) and sewed them to another set of denium/flannel squares so that the raw seam was facing forward. This seam will fray giving the quilt a "rag" look. I didn't line the quilt as denium and flannel are pretty heavy to begin with, and I think it will suit my purpose with no other liner.
This will make the back of the quilt look like this...
While the front of the quilt will have fraying from the seam allowance facing forward.
After you get it all sewed together, you sew a seam around the perimeter of the quilt leaving a 1/4 seam allowance so it will also fray.
Next you go around, and make a small clip on all your seam allowances to help with the fraying process. This takes FOREVER, but it is well worth it.
Wash and dry to help it fray.
