Have you ever wanted to make a T-shirt quilt? Do you have a soon-to-be graduate in your life with a big stack of special T-shirts that he or she won’t wear anymore? Do you have T-shirts full of memories from family vacations stacked in dresser drawers? If so, then a T-shirt quilt may be just what you need to make.

Join expert T-shirt quilter Nancy Scott as she demonstrates step-by-step how to make a memory quilt for a graduate. Everything you learn from this quilt can be applied to any other T-shirt quilt. Even if you’ve never made a quilt before, if you can sew a straight line on a sewing machine, you can make a T-shirt quilt!

In this class you’ll learn how to:
  • Choose and prepare T-shirts for inclusion in a quilt.
  • Inventory the T-shirts and begin the design process.
  • Cut and stabilize the T-shirts for inclusion in a quilt.
  • Lay out the T-shirts in a cluster or column layout.
  • Create T-shirt blocks.
  • Assemble the T-shirts into a quilt top.
  • Make T-shirt borders than hang over a bed.
  • Finish the quilt with quilting, binding, embellishments and labels.
Class includes complete instructions to make three exclusive projects: Graduate’s Memory Quilt, Family Vacation Quilt and Double-Framed Pillow.

Great instructions and a wonderful class. I loved the organizational ideas. I watched the whole video before I started the quilt. Then I watched it in segments as I worked on that section of my quilt. I completed an awesome quilt for my son's friend. Now I have three other quilt requests. :)

This class gave the boost I needed to tackle a t-shirt quilt. Thank you for clear, concise instructions, especially about how to cut the t-shirts. The quilt top was completed, sandwiched and quilted and I couldn't be more pleased. I just presented it to my son-in-law for his birthday. He is so happy with it, he wants to hang it!!
