At Tshirt Quilt Co., we know your memories are important, and we want you to have peace of mind about trusting us with your t-shirts. We have listed some of our most frequently asked questions to ensure you feel confident about the process of having your treasured t-shirts made into a commemorative quilt.
Frequently Asked Questions
Yes, you can use the front, back, or both sides of a single shirt for your t shirt quilt. Just be sure to attach your numbers from the layout guide to each side that you would like to incorporate.
Yes, we can incorporate almost any clothing material in your t shirt quilt. Any specialty squares can typically be incorporated for a $5 fee per square.
We can usually ship your T-shirt quilt back to you within two to four weeks of receiving your t-shirts. Graduation and Christmas orders take a little longer, so be sure to leave some wiggle room or ask us about guaranteed delivery during those seasons. Rush orders are also available for a small fee of $19.99.
We have a few different options of soft fleece material to choose for the backing on your T-shirt quilt. We have Bright Red, Royal Blue, Black, Grey and Navy Blue available. If we do not have what you are looking for, we can always use any fleece material that you provide.
If you prefer a custom color, you can certainly provide that material. We can accept any fleece material as backing for your T-shirt quilt. Please reference the table in your kit, which lists how much fabric is needed for each size.
The outside edge of the T-shirt quilt will be bound in order to ensure stability and ensure that the quilt lasts for many, many years to come!
Yes, we can accommodate a variety of shirt sizes in the same quilt. If the toddler shirts are too small, we can add backing to the items in a process called “appliqueing”, which is an additional $5 per item. See the photo below to get an idea of how similar quilts have been completed in the past.
Yes, we would be glad to help with this T-shirt quilt! It may cost a little more depending on how the shirts are cut, but we have never seen a project we couldn’t finish. Contact us today for a quote for your project.
Please send in your entire shirt and we will do the work for you.
We offer either 12″ finished squares or 14.5″ finished squares. This means we cut the shirts either 12.5″ or 15″, so that 12″ or 14.5″ shows when the shirts are sewn into the quilt. This ensures the best option for your quilt based on your shirts, as smaller shirts sometimes require smaller squares.
Below, you can see how we cut 15″ squares before we sew them.
