plaids in quilts

Plaid fabrics are popular with quiltmakers today, but there is nothing new about plaids in quilts. 

"Plaid Shirt Guy"
No need to throw shade if you didn't know. If you look at old quilts, you'll find plaid fabrics. Here are a few of my favorite quilts with plaids.


  1. I believe a good scrappy quilt needs plaids, stripes, dots,solids & florals. Geometrics, etc. Cant hurt. A mix of woven & printed plaid adds even more!

  2. Plaid Shirt Guy is wonderful. I was going to challenge you to find his plaid in a quilt. But I think the last quilt posted has it!!!

  3. I"m so glad you included plaid shirt guy. He has the best expressions. You really brought a smile to my face just now!! Thanks for sharing and those plaid quilts all make me want to go raid my hubby's closet right now!!
