Bring in those old T-shirts and make a Personal Treasure out of them!

In this class, we will take a small group of your T-shirts and trim around the logos. We’ll talk about mitigating stains and hiding holes & tears in older well-loved shirts. Photo-transfers and Trapunto techniques will be optional embellishments that will make your quilt-top uniquely yours. Then we will sew fabric frames around the blocks to bring them up to a uniform size, and join them into columns with sashing in between. Finally, you’ll add an outside border to finish it all off! If there’s time at the end, we will explore making a label for the back, which will record the who/what/when/why of all your efforts. This will make your T-shirt quilt a treasured family heirloom. Five weeks of 3-hour classes, plus some home-stitching assignments, will complete your project. Maximum six students, so you get plenty of individual attention. Important: Do Not Trim your shirts before class. Please bring in the whole shirt, intact, and we will cut out the logo area in class.
