Tee-Shirt Quilt Pricing and Information
What is a tee-shirt quilt? – Tee-Shirt quilts are a wonderful way to preserve and utilize a collection of tee-shirts, sweatshirts, ballcaps, photos, emblems or patches. Celebrate your favorite memories from athletic events, concerts, school or college, and many more.
What does the customer need to provide? – You simply provide your tee-shirts (un-cut, freshly laundered in mild detergent & no fabric softener or dryer sheets) and I will design a custom quilt top. The top will be cut and sewn using your t-shirts, then layered with batting and backing. The three layers will then be quilted, bound, and a label applied. The pricing listed covers all materials other than your tee-shirts.
Extras – Frequently, customers will want other items in a tee-shirt quilt such as logos from a ballcap, patches or emblems, or photographs. I may also be able to find a themed fabric for the backing to enhance the quilt. A special label can be made to accommodate photos as well. If you want to display your quilt, a hanging sleeve can also be applied.
All quilts are custom designed based on the type, number, size, and logos on the tee-shirts provided. Each quilt will be unique, and pricing is based upon typical tee-shirts and past experience in designing quilts.
Once I have seen the tee-shirts and other items, I will be able to determine a final size and cost which will be conveyed to the customer. Customer will approve final cost before any work is started.

Pricing is based on the number of square inches that a finished quilt measures. The cost for your quilt could vary depending upon the size you would like. All quilts are based on a 4” grid and finished sizes will be divisible by 4. Minimum charge is $400.
The amount of time it takes to complete your quilt will vary. 4 – 6 weeks is a standard lead-time, but prior to the holidays, it could take longer. You will be given a lead time once you have approved the size and pricing of your tee-shirt quilt.
