At the November meeting we will have a T shirt workshop. We will go over how to plan out your quilt, how to iron on your stabilizer and how to cut your shirts and hopefully we will sew some blocks together. If you plan to attend please bring the following supplies.
- T shirts (no need to cut them out until the workshop)
- Rotary cutter
- Sewing machine
- 12 inch or larger square ruler. If you plan to have larger blocks than 12.5 inches you will need a ruler to measure your blocks
- Pressing cloth
Light weight – iron on interfacing, if you are using a dark jersey shirt you will need a dark interfacing. It might help to bring the shirt with you when you shop for interfacing to see if the stabilizer will show through.
Bring fabrics you plan to use around your blocks. I have found that black and white sm print work well especially if you have a variety of colors in your shirts. I have used prints that have the same theme as the shirts such as football prints or water for swim team shirts.
We will need several irons, ironing boards and cutting mats for all to share.
