One question we get asked quite frequently at the shop is...
"I want to make a quilt using all my child's great T-shirts, what is the best way to do that"?
Well now we finally have a great resource which includes the suggestions we usually give, all wrapped up in the pages of this great book.
Reasonably priced at under $20.00....you will find 10 projects as well as complete instructions on stabilizing your T-shirts, Adjusting the size to fit your quilt plan, trimming & piecing hints, quilting recommendations & so much more.
With graduation upon us I know there will be many of you wondering how to preserve all those team sports T-shirts, Club T-shirts, and vacation T-shirts. Well make a quilt that can be enjoyed for years to come!
I found this book to be a great resource & I am sure you will too. Enjoy!!
I have been following this Australian quilter for many years. I just love what she does with color and the way she takes traditional quilt patterns and adds a little modern twist to it.
She co-authored "Material Obsession" books one & two with her long time quilting friend and business partner Kathy Doughty.
You will love the layout of the book,She has included little details about choosing fabrics, tools she likes, as well as the focus she puts on specific quilting techniques..
The projects are provided in a small size as well as a larger bed size so you can test your skills before you start out on "the big one". The book has 10 pairs of quilt projects which will get you on the road to mastering a variety of quilting techniques. I just love the rich feast for the eyes this book provides! You will too, now off to add to the list of projects I want to start. Enjoy!
