Thrilled with new quilt!
Recipient is thrilled with her new quilt!

As we get ready for the upcoming holiday season, I’m reminded of several comments from happy customers from last year.
My favorites:

OMG! Everyone just finished opening their Christmas presents. I had to let you know. The kids were all THRILLED with their quilts. Everyone agrees this was the Best Christmas Ever…
— Janice R. KC MO.

My daughter was so excited to have a “memory quilt“ made from her favorite tees from high school!! Each block has wonderful memories that tell her story ! She squeeled with delight when she opened her Christmas gift, and hugged it to her chest. Thank you for this wonderful gift.

Is There Still Time For The Holidays?

Depending on what time you figure out that this is going to be the ‘greatest gift ever’, you have a few options. If ordering BEFORE Thanksgiving, we can generally get your quilt done for Christmas. After that, you might have to add an expedite fee. Just a mere $50, we move you to the front of the list. Of course, if you wait until Christmas Eve, it probably ain’t gonna happen! Just say’n!! Doen’t mean that you can’t still go ahead with the idea, and put a card under the tree that says your quilt is on it’s way.. That way, they can help with the selection of the tees included in the quilt.

Memory Quilt or T-Shirt Quilt???

Whether your kids are still in school, or headed off to college. T-shirts are a mark of time, a memory of a party, an event or a general memory. You might want to refer to this scrapbook you can sleep under a ‘t-shirt quilt’ or a ‘memory quilt’. Either way, know that your recipient is going to LOVE and reasure this heirloom for a lifetime. Find out more about T-Shirt Quilts or Memory Quilts.

A custom quilt made with your families t-shirts is a perfect gift. Your kiddos tees are memories. Whether you are including tshirts from the last couple of years, vacations, sports events or marathon runs; all make great memory quilts.

The best part of all is that you get to clean out your attic, kids room, or other storage space to make what your family member will confirm. It’s “The Best Christmas Ever.”

Difference Between a Border and Binding in a T-Shirt Quilt

Borders or Binding?

Many times when someone is sending their tshirts in and ordering a quilt, they will ask ‘what fabric do you use for that outside border?”

OK,  the confusion comes because the customer does not understand the difference between the ‘binding’ and a ‘border’.  In this photo, we are also showing ‘sashing‘ and ‘backing‘ which are also parts of any real quilt. Continue reading Difference Between a Border and Binding in a T-Shirt Quilt

T-Shirt Quilt Makers Near Me – Is This The Best Option??

Looking for a T-Shirt Quilt Maker?

You typed in “T-Shirt Quilt Makers Near Me”. You may or may not have found great Google results for a tshirt quilt maker.

Several times this past week, I’ve heard the comment “oh, I’m so glad you are local, I wouldn’t want to put my tshirts in the mail”. While, we are fortunate to live outside of a huge metro area (Houston), I cringe a bit on the inside when hearing that. There are actually two issues here. Trusting the Post Office and not knowing anything about the t-shirt quilt maker.
