Fun Things to Do With T-Shirts

T-Shirt Quilt Pants

This has to  be the best thing I've seen with t-shirts.  Last year at Quilt Market, the lady checking our tickets at the door  was wearing PANTS made with t-shirts.  OK, that was a first for me.

Here she is in all her glory.  I asked her if it was OK to post on my blog.   She was like "sure, go for it".

 Don't have a pattern or any instructions on how to do this.  But hey...  as she said... "go for it".

I didn't get in there real close to check.  Are the t-shirts OVER the jeans, or did she replace the jeans.  Either way, I LOVE IT!!

Frameless/No Sashing Quilts - Part 3

Our Frameless/No Sashing quilt  is the most economical version tshirt quilt we offer.  All of the tee shirts are still backed with a 100% cotton stableizer, and use the same quilt shop high quality fabrics for the back and borders.  

The quilts are still based on a grid layout, but we do accomodate larger images when needed.  We can still combine smaller logo sized images to make a larger block.  Since our pricing is based on a 'per  block' basis, we charge an 'additional seam' or 'combine' charge instead of the full block price for each shirt.

The quilt on the right shows:

  • generous outer border
  • optional accent border*
  • block made up of 3 smaller logos*
  • oversized blocks.
  • professional machine quilting

Basic T-Shirt Quilts - Part 2

Basic T-Shirt Quilts

Our 'Basic' t-shirt quilts have ALL the same  quality, and features of our Premier/Standard quilts.  The only difference is the number of borders included on the outside perimeter.

As always, we give you your choice in fabric colors.  Choose contrasting sashings from the outer border and tie it all together with matching cornerstones.  Again, no extra charge for the professional touches.

  • Sashing - The long rectangles around the shirts
  • Cornerstones - Those little squares at the intersections of the sashings.
  • Border - Whopping 5 inch border surrounding the entire quilt.
