What makes our T-Shirt Quilts different than others?
Each shirt is backed with high quality interfacing material to limit stretching and shifting to achieve a better overall design. This also allows it to hold its shape over time. Once the quilt top is made, it is assembled with the quilt backing material and batting on our longarm machine and professionally longarmmed with your choice of quilt design. Then the quilt is finished with binding. All materials used are high quality and will stand the test of time. These are true quilts, not blankets.
Caring for your quilt: Quilts can be Machine Washed and Dried. We suggest to wash in cool water and low to medium heat in dryer. If Cuddle is used on the back, do not use fabric softeners in the wash or dryer sheets that contain fabric softeners to maintain original softness.
Types of T-Shirt Quilt Designs
Simple with Border - This has no fabric in-between or around individual t-shirts
Basic Sashing with Border- same fabric separating each shirt
Framed with Border - Two complimentary colored fabrics are used. Half the shirts are bordered in each color.
Puzzle Design - The graphics of each shirt are cropped which gives you various sized pieces. The top is designed much like a puzzle with varying sizes of graphics. Additional coordinating fabric is used to fill in spaces and give your eye a rest. This achieves a more balanced design.
Most shirt blocks are 12-14 inches. We can use both child sized and adult sized shirts int he same quilt. We will border out the smaller shirts with coordinating fabric to make all blocks the same size.
