Scrappy Wonky Stars Quilt (33)

Since I was using up my 4 x 4 inch scraps, I noticed a small pile of my husband’s chopped up shirts.  I had already made a quilt and a sham, what else could I possibly do with more plaid squares?

Leftover plaid squares make very manly stars!

I love how manly this quilt is.  The backing fabric and binding is extra material from a fort that I made for my kids.  The back, to me, has a very military feel.  I tried to quilt this quilt with a straight line crisscross diagonal pattern, but my machine was having tension issues with my pressure foot, but it did meandering just fine.  Next wonky stars quilt, I’ll work more with straight lines.  This quilt was given to my mother-in-law (since I used her son’s shirts, I thought she would enjoy it the most.)  She is funny because she didn’t put it in the playpen like I thought she would, but she displays it on her living room couch.  I’m so glad that she likes it that much.
