How will you create my quilt?
The materials we use to create your quilt or bed runner in addition to your own t-shirts (thread, needles, batting and backing, binding and sashing materials) are included in the price of your quilt.
T-shirts need to be stabilized prior to sewing and quilting. Starch or lightweight interfacing will be used.
After your quilt top is completed, your quilt is sandwiched with a 100% cotton backing material and 80/20 (cotton/polyester) low loft batting. It is then longarm machine quilted using the all over, edge-to edge design you select when ordering.
When the machine quilting is completed, the quilt is removed from the frame and bound with a strong, double-folded binding that coordinates with your finished quilt.
How long does it take for my quilt to be completed?
Typically quilts take between 3 to 4 weeks once the t-shirts have been received from the client.
Do you send back any leftovers?
We create the quilt design based on the number of shirts that you send to us. If there are any remaining whole t-shirts that have not been used in the quilt per your directions, those will be returned with the quilt.
Do I get to choose the colors?
Yes, you can choose from a number of coordinating fabric colors available for selection based on the initial design discussion for your quilt.
How long does it take for my order to arrive?
All orders are shipped via trusted, certified parcel carrier with tracking and insured for the purchase price of the quilt. Once your order has shipped we will provide you with a tracking number so you can monitor your order and its delivery.
What do I need to do to prepare my t-shirts for the quilt?
Before sending your t-shirts please make sure they are washed. Once washed, please send the entire t-shirt. We will work to preserve the logo. Please do not trim or cut your t-shirt in any way.
How many t-shirts should I send?
Depending on the size of quilt you would like to receive, you will need to send the number of t-shirts according to the list below:
12-16 shirts will yield a crib/lap size quilt
20-24 shirts will yield a throw size quilt
30-35 shirts will yield a twin size quilt
36-42 shirts will yield a full/queen size quilt
49 shirts will yield a queen/king size quilt
6-14 shirts will yield a 24-28x88” inch bed runner
Is it safe to wash a t-shirt quilt?
Yes, the quilts are machine-washable in cold/warm water. If dark colored use a color catcher. Tumble dry low, expect some shrinkage.
How should I store my quilt?
The quilts are best-displayed in non-direct sunlight. If you are going to store your quilt for a lengthy time period, it is best to carefully fold the quilt and place it in a cotton pillowcase to protect it from dust. We recommend refolding the quilt every few months to help prevent fold lines within the quilt.
