T Shirt Quilts


About T Shirt quilts


T-Shirt or Memory Quilts

Are you saving T-shirts from school, sports, organizations or concerts? Have a collection of shirts or clothing from a loved one.  I can make a wonderful showcase with all those special T-shirts you have been saving.  We can use any amount of t-shirts. A throw size quilt can be made from as few as 12 t-shirts.   A king size quilt may have as many as 42 or more t-shirts.  The following are only typical examples.  We can change the size of the blocks and sashing to get closer to a certain size you may want.  For example, the t-shirt block can be only 12", it would depend on the graphics on the shirts. Fabrics from graduation gowns, costumes and uniforms can be added.  I can insert a  photo transfer or verse into the quilt. You can have a double sided quilt if you choose. We are only limited by our imagination! The following prices include: All fabrics (muslin, or black sashing & muslin backing), batting, cutting, stabilizing, piecing and quilting and binding. If you would like to have a different color for the sashing or backing, I carry a limited amount of colors.  I can purchase the fabric for you and add the expense to your bill, or I can give you yardage amounts so you can purchase your own. 


 Traditional Setting$18.00 per T-shirt.  The traditional setting for a quilt is a 14" square of t-shirt graphic with 2" sashing  Custom Setting $20.00 per t-shirt.  Custom setting would apply if we are using different sized shirts or graphics that have to pieced together. We can add fabrics from costumes or uniforms. The sashing may vary within the quilt.  

Cornerstones $2.00 each  These are the squares separating the sashing between t-shirts.  Fabric of a different color than the sashing. This price includes cost of fabric plus application.

Quilt Sleeve $25.00. Quilts that will be displayed on walls should have a sleeve tacked to the back near the top edge , to hold a hanging rod


Photo transfer or verse $5.00 each.  I can make color copy photos or create verse to go into the quilt.

Tabs for hanging $2.00 each.  Wide loops applied to the top of the quilt so you can hang it from a rod. This price includes cost of fabric plus application.
