About the Event
Turn your life memories into a cozy quilt! Bring all those t-shirts you have been collecting through the years from the marathons you ran, the concerts you danced at, or the places you have visited and transform them into a quilt top. Come and sew with us while taking a trip down memory lane!
In this class you will learn all the steps and techniques to create a t-shirt quilt top including:
- Preparing the shirts
- Designing the quilt
- How to apply and use interfacing
- How to accurately cut your shirts into quilt blocks
- Upsizing smaller blocks
- Planning the layout
- Adding sashing, cornerstones, and borders
While you may not finish your quilt top during this 4 hour class, you'll get all the information you'll need to continue sewing after the class is over. This workshop also comes with two extra hours of studio time from 6pm - 8pm following your class so that you can stay and keep working with the support of Hello Stitch staff!
Skill level: Beginner (102) - You have a couple of small projects under your belt. You already know how to thread and use a sewing machine and you're ready to learn more advanced basics.
Supplies included in with the class:

- 2.5" sashing strips in your choice of solid navy, black, or white
About the Instructor:
Vanina Doce-Mood has been sewing and creating since she was a teenager, but didn’t start quilting until she was pregnant with her daughter, 9 years ago. She fell in love with it and hasn’t stopped making quilts since then! She loves bright colors and mismatching patterns, and the endless possibilities textiles offer. She lives in a red house in Oakland with her husband and daughter, a dog, a cat, a fish and 4 chickens. When she's not sewing, you can find her on the dance floor of different Bay Area locations teaching dance to kids and adults.
