Coordinate the Colors or go Full On Scrappy!

Easy stars made from thrift store shirts produce a wonderfully soft and cozy quilt. This will be a great gift for a man in your life or create one for yourself.

Select shirts of various colors for a more scrappy look. Or coordinate the colors for a controlled scrap quilt. The beauty of using old men’s shirts, beside the low cost, is that plaids and stripes add texture and interest to the finished quilt.

Smoky Mountain Stars Quilt

The pattern, from Bonnie Hunter, is super easy to make. In fact, she says “This is probably the easiest star quilt you can ever make.”

Select your shirts, cut them apart (don’t bother to undo the seams – just cut them off) and have fun creating your own version of this wonderful quilt.

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). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
