You don't need money to create The Poor Man Quilt! A healthy supply of scraps and a few extra minutes are all that are required for this project. Use this tutorial to learn how to make a great-looking summer quilt for very little money. The beauty of this scrap quilt pattern is the freedom it gives you. There is no specific set of measurements, so you can make it as large or as small as you want using this helpful tutorial and diagram as your guide. With this fun pattern, you can even use old clothes, linens, or t-shirts to create your quilt top! The name of the quilt says it all, so grab any spare materials you've got lying around and start quilting.

Just love the freedom and ease this pattern gives the quilter, basket of scraps here I come!

love the quilt..did you quilt the top and bottom together so they don't shift?

So awesome to see this pattern here this morning! Last night I was awake and thinking about all the vintage hankerchiefs and scraps of linen items I have and wondering how to put them together to get them used and have a nice way to do so since they are just sitting in my sewing room awaiting my inspiration. I think I have found it! I will try this or a variation of it and use my scraps. Wish me luck! What will you try to make using this pattern?

What a great way to use up your extra scraps! I'm going to send this pattern to my mom - she'll love it!
