Gustavus Quilts

Gustavus Quilts

Our purpose is to preserve the artwork from each shirt, and turn each one into a tiny quilt. These finished quiltlets will all be strung together on a line (similar to prayer flags) and displayed at future Gustavus community events.

Everybody is welcome. Come and learn. There are many jobs including designing, ironing, cutting, machine sewing, and hand sewing. Come choose your favorite old T-shirt design, add borders and binding to complete the quiltlet.

Bring sewing machines, fabric, sewing supplies, food to share (potluck lunch), and enthusiasm for a great community project.
