We have been making t-shirt quilts since 2006. Most folks have plenty of t-shirts to make their quilt, the problem is limiting them to a certain amount. Sometimes, you might not have enough shirts to go with the theme you have in mind.
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')
Family Reunion T-Shirt Quilts
We have done several annual family gathering or reunion quilts this last month or so. I am always so impressed by the creativity of families that meet year after year and create a t-shirt every year to commemorate the event.
It Is Graduation Time Again!
Graduation is a serious time of the year. Especially for the first graduate in the family. This is a perfect gift for the the new graduate going off to college. Our 15-block quilt is the perfect size for those long twin-sized dorm beds. Order soon so your graduate is not disappointed!
We recently had a customer that wanted a LOT of t-shirts included in their quilt. I had to limit it to 42 t-shirts. That is a LOT of t-shirts and results in HUGE quilt.. The most we can load on our quilting machine is 6 blocks wide. That is 6 blocks wide (14" blocks, plus sashing, plus borders).
We have always limited our quilt sizes to 36 blocks. Keep in mind that is a huge King-sized quilt. However, this customer insisted we use 42 t-shirts. Of course they were Harley Davidson t-shirts. OK, I have to admit we have a soft spot for H-D t-shirts. Hubby had a '74 Sportster before he met me. He named her 'Dora'. So, how could we say no to this one?
