News & Such

Last Saturday’s t-shirt quilt class at Stitch N Quilt was a lot of fun.  Great group of ladies who hopefully learned a few things about making a t-shirt quilt.  I know they had a good time experimenting with my steam press!  I was also encouraged to try the quilt as you go method for a change.  I might just do that for my next shop sample…but I need some more t-shirts first.

Remember: Making a t-shirt quilt is nothing to be afraid of.  If you can sew a straight 1/4″ seam and use an iron, you have the skill set necessary to make the top.  Many of my students were worried about the quilting design before they ever cut the first t-shirt.  Don’t worry about the quilting design until you get through with the top!  Quilting by checkbook (i.e., send it out to a longarmer) is perfectly acceptable.
