New classes in eastern Iowa this winter
I’ve added some new classes to my schedule in eastern Iowa this winter. If you’re in the area, I’d love to see you at one of the classes. I’m also available to come to guilds and quilt shops in the Midwest, so let me know if you’d like to schedule a class.
For a complete list of classes I teach and supply lists, please visit the Classes section of the website.
How to make a T-shirt quilt
Do you have drawers full of old T-shirts that you don’t wear anymore but don’t want to throw away for sentimental reasons? Now you can clear out your drawers guilt-free by repurposing the shirts in a quilt. This class will teach you how to cut out the designs, stabilize them so the fabric doesn’t stretch and piece them into a quilt top to enjoy.
