This Scrappy Quilt Was Made From Plaid Shirts |
Easily Adjust the Size and Make Your Own Scrappy Quilt!
Delectable Mountain blocks offer so many design possibilities. We’re perhaps most familiar with the traditional layout similar to the one show here in these scrap versions (notice that these blocks are oblong instead of square).
The vivid blues and other colors in this lap version are simply stunning. Plaid fabrics from recycled shirts add another layer of detail and interest.
This bed sized version in softer colors is just as beautiful.
Both quilts are pieced entirely from scraps. You’ll have fun going through your leftover fabrics to make your own unique version. Or, choose a large variety of layer cake squares, fat quarters or yardage. You can also cut apart old shirts as was done in the first quilt shown above.
Whatever fabric styles and colors you choose will be great in this quilt. Go as bold or soft as you like.

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article).
