Valley Quilt Guild

Marysville – Yuba City est.1982

The Valley Quilt Guild has a membership with a multitude of skills. Our goal is to have fun, learn new things, help our community with community service, and quilt, quilt, quilt!

We are the Yuba-Sutter Valley Quilt Guild, located about 50 miles north of Sacramento, CA. We started the guild in 1981 and have grown to have between 175-200 members! Through educational meetings and fellowship, we strive to contribute to the knowledge of quilting, quilt techniques, textiles, patterns, history and quilt-makers. We promote the appreciation of fine quilts and encourage growth of knowledge with different techniques through our guest speakers and teachers.

I have been making T Shirt Quilts full time for over 2 years making quilts form around the USA from my Etsy shop. In that time I have developed ways and techniques for making the most of this style that is now growing ever more popular.
In this class I will share with students the best way to design the quilt with the T Shirts you have to use, every one is different! Share a variety of designs and options and how to combine cotton fabrics with the shirts to help stabilize them.
Although the quilt won’t get finished during this class students will get it mapped out, cut and blocks started before continuing on at home.
