This unusual indigo quilt is made entirely of denim jeans. It is reminiscent of a Japanese boro in which indigo garments are repurposed into bedcovers. Shadows of pockets and stitched seams add visual interest. This piece would make a very sturdy bedcover or wonderful abstract wallhanging. Measurements are 86" x 89; made circa 1980. It is a top with finished edges but no backing; excellent condition.
