Here is something I spread out recently to check out as it's been in storage for years. This is a quilt that my Grandmother made a LONG time ago.
It's hard to describe though. One side is made up of random fabric squares, probably from old clothing and fabric scraps.
Just a random collection of them sewed together. The filling between the front and back is also very heavy. But when you flip it over, the other side is...
...made up of my Grandfather's old jeans and overalls! You can even see where there were repairs made once upon a time.

So the entire other side is just squares of blue jeans, khaki colored overalls and even the traditional blue striped ones (those are the ones I most often remember him wearing). Needless to say, this is HEAVY, but I remember when I was little and visited them, this was my favorite one to sleep under.
It's a different kind of quilt than you might normally see, not even sure what you'd call it other than random patchwork. We have a bunch of the more traditional quilts as well, flowers, kittens, dutch girls/boys, stars, etc. we'll share pictures of them on the blog as we pull them out.
Love old quilts with so many memories.
