You did WHAT with my T-Shirts?

Can You Believe THIS is What Some Folks Consider a T-Shirt QUILT???

 

One of those other 'blankets'.
 
There are a lot of folks out there making T-Shirt Quilts. Or rather, should I say t-shirt comforters or blankets. There is a new company out there professing to be the 'cheapest' on the web. I have had several of those 'cheap' blankets come to my shop with either the mom in tears because the t-shirts were ruined, or the recipient in tears because the 'blanket' was awful.... Whatever the issue, you just know that this 'blanket' was done poorly, and you know it will never be used or displayed in public.

Tied Quilts - Can They Be Quilted?

Tied Quilts -
Can They Be Quilted?

Most of the time YES. Most of the time, it is a T-Shirt quilt that was commissioned by a non-professional. They did not know what they were doing. Because we have a 'soft spot' for T-Shirt quilts, we offer a special rate for quilting these type of quilts. If you use the Crazy Puzzle pattern- scaled to fit your quilt, we offer a special discounted rate over our usual rates. And no, we are not prejudiced because you tried to do it yourself or used someone elses pattern.  

This is an example of a quilt that has been tied. In this case, the 'ties' are pretty close together, and would probably hold up over time and many trips to the laundry room.  Many amateur quilters will just tie in the corners of the intersections of the t-shirts, meaning they could be up to 12 or even 18 inches apart.  That means that everytime the quilt is laundered, the batting inside is wadding up and disintegrating.
 

As one of the premier 't-shirt quilt' creators in the country, we get a lot of projects where we 'fix' quilts that were done by the non-professionals or well-intentioned family or friends. Because these folks do not have the equipment that quilting professionals use, they end up working on a project that is beyond their capabilities.
