I’ve made 3 quilts in my life. One is kind of un-usable, I call it a crazy quilt, one was a gift to Andy: the grey scale quilt, and one was a small t-shirt quilt. Both the Andy quilt and the tiny t-shirt quilt, I paid someone else to quilt them for me. I want to learn how to make an entire quilt myself! I’ve enlisted some experts because I’m a big fat quilting mess! I’ve teamed up with Carolina from 30 Minute Crafts and Tami from Enchanted Desert Quilters to teach me (and us) how to make an easy t shirt quilt from start to finish. They’re pros! We’re pretty lucky to get free lessons on google + every Wednesday in March. (I’ll be posting re-caps here with pics and the live lesson!)
- The first of the 3-part Google hang out series was last night and we discussed: supplies, cutting the t-shirts and interfacing
- The 2nd hangout will be about piecing the t-shirt squares, sewing fabric around the t-shirs (if necessary), sewing the squares together, and making the backing
- The 3rd hangout would be about quilting the top and bottom together and binding the quilt
Here’s the first video. She’s 30 minutes long and oh so informative, if I do say so myself!
Here’s my very un fancy method in action:
