Our T-shirt quilts
You supply the shirts and tell us what you want and we'll do the rest.  So dig out those "special" shirts you have been saving and just can't part with and we'll return a quilt you will love filled with all those memories.  Sizes range from throws to XL-King and we offer two styles.

Traditional Style
All the shirt blocks are cut the same size, from 12 inches to 16 inches.

Variable Style
The shirt blocks are cut in various sizes.  This will allow different size logos to be accommodated, including arm and pocket designs.

What goes into making the quilt
Your quilt will be done individually, arranged and sewn personally. Please do not cut shirts apart.  Perhaps you already have, and if so we can work around that.  The T-shirt should also be laundered and in good condition.  Whatever was there for stains or marks will remain, but they do add character and good memories.  We can use the front, back, sleeve or pocket design.  You should mark the design of the shirt that you want used if there is more than one.  Otherwise we will choose what to use.  We use a stabilizer on the back of the shirt block after we have cut it precisely. Sashings are then added, if you choose.  A sashing is fabric that separates the T-shirt blocks from each other on the quilt top.  A border will be added on the sides, top and bottom of the quilt.  Low to medium loft polyester batting will be used unless another kind is requested.  The quilt top, batting and backing fabric will get sandwiched together, be machine quilted and the binding attached.  A label will be added to the quilt (unless requested not to) and if you want anything special printed on it please let us know.

Please contact us for pricing.


Fabrics
All the fabric used will be 100% cotton and most will be solid colors.  If anything other than a cotton is used it will be a subtle calico, unless we hear differently from you.  Tell us what color you prefer and we will try to accommodate.  Otherwise we will pick colors that are pleasingly complimentary to the shirt blocks.  That includes sashings, backings and bindings.

Quilting
The quilting is done on a longarm machine using a medium to large meander or a design that has more open space within the pattern. We request that half down be paid at time of ordering and balance due before delivery.
