About The Class

how to make a quilt from repurposed fabric.

A handmade quilt is inherently replete with meaning – making one from reused textiles only enhances that richness. In Sewing Clothes into Quilts, you’ll learn techniques for incorporating significant and repurposed textiles into your quilts.

Blair Stocker is the creative mind behind the blog Wise Craft. In this class, she’ll share her love of turning everyday objects into new and meaningful things by teaching simple quilting techniques. You’ll learn about:

  • Choosing and preparing repurposed textiles
  • Planning a quilt design
  • Constructing and piecing a quilt top together
  • Joining and binding quilt layers

You’ll get inspired, as Blair teaches easy techniques you can use to make a beautifully designed quilt from items you already have around the house. You’ll learn how to clean and prep the fabric along with a variety of ways for joining the layers together.

Sewing Clothes into Quilts will teach you everything you need to know to make a simple, yet beautiful quilt from upcycled materials.
