Tee Shirt quilts make wonderful graduation gifts!  In this class, you will get general information on quilting, as well as plan and design the quilt. You will have to bring in T-shirts and other supplies will vary based upon the design and size of the quilt. After we finalize your custom design, you will assemble the quilt, work with ¼” seams, do sashing and borders and quilting and binding.
