T-Shirt Quilt Class with Letitia Mattu



Have you ever wanted to make a T-shirt quilt? Do you have a high school or college graduate in your life with a big stack of special T-shirts that he or she won’t wear anymore (but won’t part with)? Do you have a closet full of T-shirts that hold special meaning to you or a family member? Do you have T-shirts from family vacations or summer camps, T-shirts from your child’s years of playing soccer or field hockey? Have you saved all of your baby’s Onesies and cute, little outfits that you can’t bear to part with? If so, then a T-shirt quilt (or two or three) just might be the thing!

You can make a t-shirt quilt even if you have never made a quilt before. If you can sew a straight line and sew an accurate quarter inch seam, then you can make a T-shirt quilt! Let’s get those special T-shirts out of closets, boxes, and bags, and turn them into something you or a loved one can enjoy. Everything you learn from this quilt can be applied to any other T-shirt or memory quilt. Join Letitia Mattu as she guides you through the process.

In Class #1 you will learn how to:

  • Inventory the T-shirts
  • Choose and prepare T-shirts
