Jane Haworth Workshop: TIPS AND TRICKS FOR MAKING T SHIRT QUILTS
I have been making T Shirt Quilts full time for over 2 years making quilts form around the USA from my Etsy shop. In that time I have developed ways and techniques for making the most of this style that is now growing ever more popular.
In this class I will share with students the best way to design the quilt with the T Shirts you have to use, every one is different! Share a variety of designs and options and how to combine cotton fabrics with the shirts to help stabilize them.
Although the quilt won’t get finished during this class students will get it mapped out, cut and blocks started before continuing on at home.
