T-Shirt Quilt Top Workshop
Instructor - Laverne Farrar
Skill Level - Beginner to Advanced
We can help you get started creating a beautiful memory quilt with that stack of t-shirts you have been saving. In this workshop you will piece your t-shirt quilt top with sashing and a border. This will take place in two sessions. In the Cutting Session we will begin cutting and fusing the interface to our t-shirts. In the Sewing Session we will begin piecing the quilt together. After attending both sessions you will have learned the skills and techniques to complete your T-Shirt Quilt Top on your own.
