About the Class
Do you have tons of T-shirts that you don’t wear, but can’t part with? Make a fabulous quilt with them! Cheryl will show you how to make a masterpiece that will be cherished for years to come. Most pieces of clothing can be added. You will learn all the best techniques to make it easy and enjoyable!
Many people have T-shirts that hold memories, though they no longer wear them. Instead of letting those shirts sit in a drawer, you can breathe new life into them by turning them into a T-shirt quilt. This all-day class, taught by Cheryl Wallin, will go over everything you need to know to create your own heirloom T-shirt quilt.
Hello! I’m Cheryl, a quilter, longarm quilter, quilt instructor and fabric collector from Saratoga Springs, Utah.
I was hooked on quilting once I was introduced to it by my in-laws,
both of who are avid quilters, 15 years ago. For me, quilting is the
perfect combination of creativity and technical challenge, all in the
name of creating something useful and beautiful.
In addition to quilting, I am the mother of 5 amazing young adult
children, 3 of who are married to amazing spouses and Grammy to
4 fantastic grandchildren….who I love more than quilting. I’m married to the love of my life, who owns and operates his own trucking
company, leaving me lots of time to quilt while he’s on the road.
I love fabric! And it will probably take me a lifetime to use up my
fabric stash, but that doesn’t stop me from buying just about everything from Art Gallery Fabrics and all types of fabric that fall into
the bright color scheme. I love HST and foundation paper piecing.
And would you believe that picking out the fabric is my favorite part
of the quilting process. For me, I need obtainable finishes, because
I have a busy life - day job and grands! I love to teach and meet
new people. My quilt friends are the best!!
