I have made many T-shirt quilts for my customers and my family and they are a huge hit. What better way to kill two birds with one stone- you get to clear out the closet of all those old t-shirts and you have a wonderfully warm memory quilt. If you want a picture added to your quilt, that can be done as well for as little as $15 per additional block.
Flannel or cotton backing and cotton batting make the quilt very warm and soft. All quilts are fully quilted on my long arm machine so they will last for years to come. Sashing can be added to the blocks to make the quilt look more uniform in pattern design.
I can make t-shirt quilts in several sizes depending on how many t-shirts you bring in (and what size they are). 20 shirts make a large twin quilt if you combine them with sashing and borders. I charge $20 per t-shirt to piece a quilt of this size but it does not include the additional fabric for the borders, sashing, binding, backing and batting. There is an additional charge for the quilting and that depends on the size of the quilt. Overall, you are looking at about $350 for a finished quilt of this size. Queen sized can run about $500 or more and king up to $900 depending on the number of blocks. The $20/shirt includes cutting, stabilization of the fabric, piecing, quilting and binding. The additional costs are if you get extra fabric between the blocks and a border.

Imagine using all your daughter's soccer shirts with a picture of her in uniform on her new quilt, or all the biker shops your Harley rider has visited and collected with a picture of his bike on the front, or maybe all your son's shirts he has collected from cub scouts and boy scouts and turn them into a quilt when he turns into an eagle scout! The ideas for giving a t-shirt quilt are endless!
Call the shop for more information. I can finish your quilt in about 2 months (unless it is during the holidays). Please give me extra time if you need it for a Christmas gift. There are no refunds for custom work.
