Featuring: Wendy Grande

Posts On: January 28, 2018


Alex and Ricky welcome back Wendy Grande, who recently fell in love with T-shirt quilts when looking for a way to create a memory quilt by incorporating her daughter's college sorority shirts. Along with tips and tricks for creating design layouts, Wendy shares ways to personalize a quilt for the recipient.
But wait, there’s more. The recent addition of a grandchild allowed Wendy to create a special baby memento WIP quilt featuring the onesies, shirts, buttons and other personal items. This show’s tips, tricks and personal touches, definitely put the "T" in T-shirt quilts.

Star Members can click here to download Wendy's Quilts as Unique as You booklet which outines the steps for creating a T-shirt quilt.

From Chapter One:

Alex and Ricky welcome back Wendy Grande and learn about her newest endeavor...T-shirt quilts. They take a look at the quilts she has brought along to the show.

From Chapter Two:

Wendy shares tips and tricks for creating a design layout with your t-shirts.

From Chapter Three:

Wendy shows you how to adjust and work around problem areas that will later, really not be noticed (e.g. neck, arm). This allows you to gain a much larger area of the t-shirt fabric that can be used. She also talks about stabilizing and proper pressing.

From Chapter Four:

Wendy gives tips for personalizing a quilt using a current WIP grandbaby quilt as an example. Learn how to audition layouts, soften photos using computer software, and collage images into a larger photo.

I have always been reluctant to do a tee shirt Quilt but after this show I’m ready to tackle it. I have 2 grandsons in baseball so here I go. Great show. Thanks for the info.

Still working to get the site up - should be in the coming week. When printing pictures - it is best to test them based on the manufacturer's recommendations . We have washed the pictures many times with no issue. I have seen some fading based on light exposure. The major consideration is the printer used and ink quality as well as the quality of the fabric you are printing on. The higher the thread count on the fabric the better the picture.

I am unable to download the PowerPoint presentation, as well, the link doesn't appear to be working. Is there another way to access it?

It wouldn't come up for me using Explorer. Switched to Chrome and was able to save the file. Not sure what has happened to Wendy's website. Looks like she doesn't have it anymore, since it is up for sale.

Can the printed pictures used in the quilts be washed if so how? Since the quilts are to be used I assume they will need to be washed at some point. Is there a special process for the pictures in order to wash the whole quilt?
