Kerry's Bar Towel Quilt
We had such a great time at the Makehouse on Fort St in Victoria on March 11! Victoria's downtown core was alive with raindrops and bustling feet. I even found a parking spot not far away!
I have been in love with the ambiance at Jenny's Shop since the first time I saw the photo of her window display online.
Jenny Ambrose is so sweet and is passionate about reusing. The new fabric classes for lingerie shows in the various items hung around her shop.!
Her classes are full of interesting fashion and home decor that would suit most learners with new stuff being added all the time. Also, what is coming are more quilting classes and for a video view of her shop, this video is a great promo of herself and her concept once you are at her site.
In the meantime, quilty folks! I watched a beginner make her first t-shirt quilt from bar towels. Yes, who knew that bar towels like these from different pubs from across the world even existed?
Kerry's undertaking was a bit over the top for a beginner. But it didn't slow down this energetic and focused student! Such a joy to watch a student learn. She trudged on like the best of them. She chose decorative top color thread that made this quilt bold and comfy all at once.
Her hubby will be be very proud I'm sure!
This is me back in 2010 having made a custom t-shirt quilt for the then, Mayor of Smithers Cress Farrow's RV with formed corners, so I've not been stumped yet in what you can use in place of t-shirts for your quilt.
My services are available if you want a one of kind custom family heirloom, contact me!
This t-shirt quilt below is one of my favorites. The owner commissioned me to "just put it all in something nice" and I think I did.
Moving right along with an upcoming quilt retreat happening this weekend. I'm off to get my quilt tops I want to finish up with this weekend.
This photo below was my most challenging t-shirt quilt.
Only one t-shirt you ask?
Such great quilts and even greater that they have recycled T shirts and other items! Christine xReplyDelete
Thank you Christine for reading this wee post! I love recycling!Delete
Bar towels - I would never have thought of that (or maybe I would have had I happened to have bar towels in my stash!). Nice project, as are the t-shirt quilts.ReplyDelete
