I don't have the experience of Slavek (so I may be missing something), but switching to quilt will require:
1) change the format inside debian/source/format from native to quilt
2) switch debian/ubuntu specific patches to quilt format
3)bremove anything related to quilt from debian/rules
4) modify the building scripts to create a "<source package>_<upstream version>.orig.tar.gz" file from the package source before building
5) modify the building scripts to build using format 3.0(quilt), which requires the .orig.tar.gz file to be in the parent directory of the debian folder

I have just updated dpkg on my Debian/Jessie, so in the next few days I will have to work on this, because I have already experience build failures, as Slavek initially mentioned.
If I find some other changes that are required, I will update the post.

Here are a couple of useful links as well: - section 2.4
