Some More Recent T-Shirt Quilt Stories
Happy Friday! I just wanted to share a few more things I've been making in prep for the CreativeLIVE t-shirt quilting class. Man, these quilts are so much fun to do.
This first one's for my class producer, Justin. He sent me a bunch of shirts representing his favorite causes, coffee roasters, bike races, and breweries. Plus one tie-dye shirt, which is my new favorite thing. I used every square inch of that baby I could.
What's really cool is that, although Justin and I haven't worked together very long, and mostly via email. through the process of making this quilt for him, I feel like I got to know him a little better. Those are the shirts of a dude I can really hang with.
This one uses shirts from Antonio and Sophia, a brother and sister my Mom has "adopted" along with their parents. This quilt was a fun challenge because the shirts were so diverse. Getting them all to hang together in one quilt took a lot of re-arranging, staring at, ruminating, re-arranging, muttering under my breath, and re-arranging. But I'm happy with how it came together in the end!
Pushkin also got his own t-shirt quilt, which he took advantage of immediately. I used up all the leftover scraps I had in his colorway. :-)
If you'd like a reminder of when this free class broadcasts, you can RSVP right over here.
And actually, they're taking applications to be in the studio audience! It's free and all you need to bring is your t-shirts. And then we can hang out in the green room together. Just fill out this form to get a shot at the live internet big-time.
