T-Shirt Quilts


T-shirt quilts are a great way to preserve t-shirts you’ve outgrown, baby clothes, or a deceased loved one’s favorite shirts.

Some ideas include shirts from squadrons, races, high school, sororities or fraternities, vacations, baby clothes, sports teams, or whatever is important to you! They make great gifts for graduation, Christmas, retirements, and birthdays!

I make three main styles of memory quilts – gridded, centered, and puzzle. Gridded is a great way to showcase some favorite shirts, while puzzle gets more shirts in. Centered is a great way to highlight your favorite shirt. You choose the style that works for you, or if you have a different style in mind, email me a picture and I’ll send you a price quote.

Add a 5” border to any quilt, increasing the width and length by 10”, for $25.

General Policies

I am currently booked through May 2017, and as we are moving this summer, I will not be taking any more orders until the fall. Please email me if you would like to be notified when fall orders open!

Turn around on quilts is approximately 4-6 weeks. A $50 deposit is required to hold your place. The deposit will be applied to your remaining balance when the quilt is finished.

Return shipping is free!

Front and backs of shirts count as two separate shirts. I can use any shirt – cotton, technical, sweatshirt, flannel, button-down shirts, military uniforms, even pants!

Please contact me for special information and pricing about baby clothes – 50+ are needed for a lap size quilt, or fabric blocks can be added.

All quilts are made with cotton batting and flannel or cotton backing. You pick the color and pattern! Quilts are professionally long-arm quilted in a custom design, and machine bound for durability and ease of washing.

Layouts and fabric choices are confirmed by the customer before any cutting occurs. I know your shirts are important to you!

Quilts are made in a smoke free home. It is not pet-free – however, all quilts are laundered before shipping.
