I have a ton of old jeans that I can't wear anymore lying around, and my first thought was of course, hey! free fabric! The only quibble I have is that denim is sort of a more casual fabric, and while I'd love to use it in a quilt it would be nice if there was some way (like combining it with other fabrics) that could make it look more "polished." Has anyone else come across this, or have any ideas?

Is probably the best example I've seen of what you're talking about.  I had this in my bookmarks and thought of it when I read your post.  I think it is gorgeous...

If you are working on (or thinking about starting) a postage stamp quilt with 1.5" squares, I have scraps and squares to give away.  PM me if you're interested.
