What are you going to do with all those t-shirts?
HAVE A QUILT MADE!
T-shirt quilts look best when they have a theme. For instance, your child's performance career in dance, theater, or sports. Shirts from your favorite places, concerts, teams, or even beer.
You supply the shirts, we supply everything else!
Your Choices include:
Quilt size ( partly determined by how many shirts you have), sashing color, backing color or theme, and binding/edging color. Would you like cotton or flannel fabric on the back? It's your quilt, customizing is easy using our T-Shirt Quilt order form.
Turn around time is approximately 6-8 weeks. Schedule early for Christmas and Graduation.
You supply the shirts, we supply everything else! (make sure the shirts are clean and stain free, as discoloration will show up on the quilt)
We offer two styles of t-shirt quilts - traditional and variable.
• Traditional t-shirt quilt
Traditional t-shirt quilt means that the shirts are all cut the same size. The shirts are placed in a grid pattern, and have sashing between the blocks. The quilt is then machine quilted. The price is determined by the number of t-shirts. The pricing is based on a 14" square t-shirt block with 1 1/2" sashing and 2" borders.
•Variable t-shirt quilt
A Variable t-shirt quilt is made by varying the size of the squares made from the shirts. A variable style is good if you have shirts of various sizes - this style allows you to incorporate various size shirt blocks, smaller logos, such as pocket designs and smaller squares. If you have t-shirts that are already cut, a variable style t-shirt quilt is also a good choice. Variation in the size of the blocks makes the quilt more interesting. The pricing is based on a 14" wide shirt block. These quilts also have 1 1/2" sashing in between the blocks and 2" borders.
Add a special touch!
- An embroidered inscription something on the order of "East Lake High Class of 2015" or "Love, Mom and Dad" on the back.
- Photos- You can include special photos as part of your t-shirt. Please pack your photo's with your t-shirts or send them by email and we will transfer them to fabric. You can include up to four (4) pictures on one transfer, depending on their size. (1- 8"x10" photo, 2- 5"x7" photos or 4- 3"x5" photos).
Quilt construction details
All quilts are made of a front panel made from your shirts with a fabric sashing accent. All shirt panels will have a high quality stabilizer applied to enhance appearance and durability while maintaining a comfortable softness. The back side of the quilt, is a "reads solid" color panel bound at the edges with an accenting color, binding/edging strip. A standard weight batting is used between the front and rear panels. All layers are securely bound together by the quilt stitching over the entire quilt. This quilting method results in a very attractive texture and provides exceptional stability.
