Our Process: What Happens to your Tees Once we Get Them

The Process

While there are lots of steps to completing your custom quilt. The ones that you are probably worried about are simple.

Once you have shipped your shirts (or dropped them off at the shop), what goes on?

Is a Professional Making YOUR T-Shirt Quilt?

Not All T-Shirt Quilt Makers are Created The Same 

WHAT?  Some companies (or crafters) actually send their quilt projects  off-site  while their customers think that  their special tees will stay at the place they mailed them.  In many cases, the quilt-maker is sub-contracting some or part of the quilt process.  Maybe they are piecing the quilt top, then sending it to someone else to quilt it. This happens  because this place is NOT a professional business. 

A professional t-shirt quilt maker is making your quilt start to finish.  They have the equipment. They have the materials.  They have the employees.  They are not farming out any  work to someone else.   This happens for several reasons; see my post on Who Is Making Your T-Shirt Quilt.   Look for a company that will complete your quilt 'in house' and reduce the risk of sending your treasured tees to someone else.

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.

T-Shirt Quilts With A Theme

Themed T-Shirt Quilts

Themed T-Shirt quilts are just that!  A collection of tees from your college, favorite vacation spots, favorite bands, Harley-Davidson  or  even a favorite animal!   If you can bear to part with your "Beavis and Butthead"  or "Batman" tshirts, then we will be glad to make a one of a kind quilt for you.

We have found that  college themed collections are probably what we see most often.  Being based in Texas, we have seen our  fair share of Texas A&M,  University of Texas (UT) and Louisiana State University (LSU) tshirts.  (Although, I have to say that the Aggies waaaayyy outnumber the Longhorns!    Just sayin')
