Ever since I made a denim cover for our couch, it has been my intention to make a napping quilt just the right size for it. I was looking at all the thrift shop shirts I have deconstructed for fabric, and thought, “These would look great with denim!” And I had just the pattern in mind–Scrappy Mountain Majesties, from Bonnie Hunter.
I made a few sample blocks, just to make sure we were compatible, and then set off. I had great fun arranging these blocks on my design wall, and trying to make them deliberately random! My arrangement is different than that of the pattern, but I like it this way too. Some of the shirts came from Goodwill, but several belonged to my father-in-law, and one stripe was a scrap from a suit I made my son 24 years ago!
Since this is a summer quilt, I used no batting and backed it with some dotted flannel. A bit of quilting, and it’s done!
