Frequently Asked Questions
Question 1. Are your t-shirt quilts actually quilted or just tied?
We quilt through all 3 layers of the quilt. We do a double stitch around each block so the quilt is fully anchored and machine washable.
Question 2. Can I use sweatshirts, jerseys, collared shirts & /or button up shirts?
Yes! We can use almost any type of material.
Question 3. What is sashing?
Sashing is the fabric (approx 1.5 inches wide) between the shirt blocks.
Question 4. What is a 3" border
The 3" border goes all along the outside of the quilt top.
Question 5. What Is Edging?
Edging is the binding that goes all the way around the outside of your quilt, it's approximately 3/4 inch. Every quilt has an edge. If you choose to add a 3" Border, the edge is outside of that.
Question 6. Can I send my own material for backing, sashing, border or edging?
Yes. Please get in touch with us and we'll give you the exact amount you'll need to purchase.
Question 7. Can I do my own layout?
We generally do the layout of the shirts for balance and color. However, if you would like us to follow a specific order or plan for your t-shirt quilt, please draw a sketch and we will follow it.
Question 8. What is included in the cost of the basic quilt?
The quilt top (your t-shirts), low loft batting in the middle, Cotton Polyester Blend for the back, and an edge/binding (approximately 3 quarters of an inch). Please note: If you choose a fleece backing, we do not use a batting in the middle. The overall weight of the quilt is still the same as our traditional quilt, however it is more compressed.
Question 9. What is the size of the block used?
15 x 15 inches
