On Saturday, I am taking a workshop from Bonnie Hunter through my guild. If you are not familiar with Bonnie, here's her website www.quiltville.com She is the master of the scrap quilt and has many free patterns on her website.
The class I am taking is called Virginia Bound, and the class is all about making quilts from old shirts! You cut them into strips and make these amazing pieces. The ultimate in "green" quilting! At first I raided my DH's closet, but he didn't have enough shirts made of woven fabric. I then started asking friends and coworkers and the shirts really poured in. In prep for the class, I need to cut them into usable strips...all by Saturday! I've been working on it for a while, but it's taking longer than I thought!
So here it is....11:09 pm here in IL, and I am cutting up shirts! I hope I make it! Keep your fingers crossed! I think I will have a late night tomorrow and Friday! I have a guild meeting tomorrow, so I think I will bring some along and cut them up while I listen to the lecture....Hey... maybe I'll bring some extra scissors and see if I can talk some of my guild "peeps" into helping!
