    Scrappy Smokey Mountain Stars - Bonnie Hunter Pattern

    This is a scrappy Smokey Mountain Stars quilt (Bonnie Hunter's pattern). I used so many ideas/techniques I learned on this site to make the quilt top. I used men's shirts I got from the local Good Will (16 different shirts). And, I starched the fabric like crazy, which really helped me with more consistent 1/2" seams, because the fabric held its shape better. Lastly, I ironed the seams in opposite directions so I could nest the seams. It worked so well!

    (The quilt is not lopsided in real life... I just hung it off-kilter.)

    I have done this quilt before. A lot of fun making it for QOV. The pattern I used was called Slanted Stars in F&P magazine.

    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    I like the look of the old shirts. I have a quilt that my great grandmother made in the late 1800's that is made from shirts. It has the blues and yellows, like your quilt. I have looked at these ideas in quilt books. You have me thinking.

    This is one of my favorite patterns. I love the idea of using shirts for it. You did a terrific job with it.

    that is so smart to get the shirts at the good will, it makes a much less expensive quilt and looks fantastic.

    Here's my scrappy Smoky Mountain stars quilt top. I used 30's repro prints for my top.
