What Is A Quilt Label?

I get a LOT of questions about quilt labels.  What are they, where do they go, why do I need one?

These days, a t-shirt is created for every ev ent, and it is not unu sual to have a large collection of t-shirts.  
 

How Many T-Shirts Do I Need?

The hardest decision in getting a t-shirt quilt made is deciding how large to make it. In other words, how many t-shirts do I need? If you have a huge collection of tee shirts, you might think that you need a king sized quilt. Just because you have a lot t-shirts, you might want a huge quilt.
