CUSTOM MADE T-SHIRT QUILTS
 

 
 
You provide the tee shirts and fabric and then I will do the rest. I will be happy to help with the selection of fabric. Allow for 8 weeks lead time.
 
Traditional T-Shirt Quilt- A Traditional t-shirt quilt is made up of shirts that are all cut the same size, set in a grid pattern with 2” sashing fabric between the blocks and 4” borders. The tee shirt design should be no larger than 14" square. I'll try my best to include as much of the design as possible in shirts that are larger than 14".
 
 
Select the number of shirts you would like in your quilt. Each side of a shirt counts as one shirt, for example, to use the front and back of a shirt, it counts as 2 shirts.
 

_____ 12 shirts - approx. 48" x 64" quilt - (throw size) - $270
_____ 20 shirts - approx. 64" x 82" quilt - (twin size)- $350
_____ 24 shirts - approx. 64" x 96" quilt - (long twin size) - $400
_____ 30 shirts - approx. 82" x 96" quilt - (full size) - $460

_____ 36 shirts - approx. 96" x 96" quilt - (queen size) - $560
_____ 42 shirts - approx. 96" x 110" quilt - (king size) - $630

 

The actual size may vary depending upon the final block size, which is tee shirt dependent. Once all the shirts are selected I will determined the block size and notify you. I will try to maintain a 12" to 14” block.

 

 

Variable T-Shirt Quilt- A Variable t-shirt quilt, as shown above, is made by varying the size of the t-shirt square. It is a good choice if your shirts have a lot of small pocket logos or for polo shirts. This style quilt has 2” sashing fabric between the blocks and 4” borders. The tee shirt design should be no wider than 14" and can be any length. Shirts wider than 14" may be used, however, the orientation of the shirt may be changed (vertical vs. horizontal if the design allows) to accommodate the size of the shirt.

 

Select the number of shirts you would like in your quilt. Each side of a shirt, pocket or other design counts as one shirt, for example, to use the pocket and back of a shirt, it counts as 2 shirts.

 

_____ Up to 21 shirts - throw size - $370
_____ Up to 30 shirts - twin size - $475.00
_____ Up to 36 shirts - full size - $595.00
_____ Up to 42 shirts - queen size - $675.00

Quilting - There are 2 options for quilting. An Edge 2 Edge pattern which is all over quilting or Semi-Custom which consists of an outside border pattern and the inside (tee-shirts) is an Edge 2 Edge all over pattern.

Quilting Cost - Once the size is determined multiply the width (X) height to get total sq inches then (X) your quilting choice.  E2E quilting is .02 per sq inch and Semi Custom is .03 per sq inch.   80/20 batting is 96" wide, $6.00 per running yard.

(Quilting cost example: size 82”x96”= 7872 si x .02[E2E]=$157.44 + batting 2-1/2 yards @$6= $15.00 for a total of $172.44).

Once the top is assembled I will send you, via email, quilting pattern suggestions for you to choose from.  If you would like a preview you can see pattern options on my web site under GQ Patterns.
