Backing Fabric for A T-Shirt Quilt
You have been collecting tshirts for as long as you can remember. You have them from the hospital where you were born, grade school and high school. The sports teams or clubs you were in during high school. You get to college and you have concert and sorority shirts. What do you do?
The obvious answer is t-shirt quilt. There are lots of t-shirt quilt makers out there, but with the hundreds of results how to you select the quilt maker that won't deliver a complete mess of your tshirts. How do you select a t-shirt quilt maker?
The backing material is the fabric that is seen on the bottom side of a quilt. At T-Shirt Quilts of Texas we have over 800 bolts of fabric in stock to select that perfect fabric for your quilt. We don't use solid color fabrics as they have a horrible tendency to show lint, pet hair and just everyday use. We use fabrics commonly referred to as 'tone-on-tone'. These are fabrics that add a visual 'texture' and 'depth' to a quilt without adding the more cluttered look of a multi-color print or the FLAT color of a solid fabric. The professional quilting shows up beautifully on both the front and the back of the quilt.
