Beginner/Intermediate Quilt Piecing: Trendy T-Shirts Transformed

Transform your trendy t-shirts into an awesome quilt that you (or the fortunate recipient) will enjoy for many years to come. Have fun sewing down memory lane while making this creation. If your quilt is a gift, the recipient will have a ball remembering where each and every t-shirt came from. People have asked me on numerous occasions, “Are those t-shirts?” With the products and techniques used in the workshop, this makes a classy t-shirt quilt. You will need 20 t-shirts for this workshop.

Workshop dates: May 10, 17, 24, 31 (Friday)
Workshop time: 10:00 – 5:00

I teach classes on all of my quilt pattern designs (see photos on the pattern page). I also teach my sought after class “Woven through Time” using student’s favorite photo. This striking wall hanging is woven like a basket. My students love the end result and their work is breathtaking!
