Give T-shirts a new home in a unique quilt

threadsHave you ever heard of making a quilt out of t-shirt? Well, the library has and it's calling you to come join them in this event! The Moore Public Library is giving old or outdated shirts a new life in its program, Make a T-Shirt Quilt, a two-day workshop from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday, Feb 10 and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 11, in Rooms A and B of the library.

The program is for ages 18 and up and will be presented by representatives from the Cleveland County OSU Extension Service. Participants will be taken step by step through the process of putting together a quilt that will be unique for each person and use shirts they might otherwise just eventually not need.

Participants will need to bring several materials for the project, including:

  • 12 prewashed t-shirts
  • 2 ¼” yards of unwashed 100% cotton fabric for sashing.
  • 3 yards of 100 percent cotton fabric for backing
  • 6 yards medium weight fusible interfacing
  • Twin size of low loft batting
  • Matching thread
  • 12 ½” x 12 ½” square ruler (15 ½” x 15 ½” for larger sizes like 2XL or larger)
  • Rotary cutter, rotary mat board, scissors, straight pins and a pin cushion

Registration is required to attend. Come and join on this relaxing fun!
