This photo is from our local newspaper - it is a Custom
Variable style t-shirt quilt that I made from a collection
of vacation t-shirts. There are approximately 120 t-shirts in
this quilt which tell 120 different stories!!
T-shirt quilts are wonderful remembrances of school activities,
sports, fraternity and sorority events. They're great for club
activities, anniversaries, scouting events, vacations and many other activities and provide a visual history of your

All quilts are made using
cotton fabric for the sashing, backing and batting, and are
machine quilted in a meandering pattern which covers the entire
t-shirt block for stability - my quilts are not tied! I use invisible
nylon thread which doesn't interfere with the design of the shirts.
This quilting method results in a very attractive texture and
provides exceptional stability.
I offer two styles of
t-shirt quilts - traditional and variable.
t-shirt quilt means that the shirts are all cut the same size.
The shirts are arranged in a grid pattern, and have sashing between
the blocks. The quilt is then machine quilted. The price is determined
by the number of t-shirts. The pricing is based on a 14"
square t-shirt block with 1 1/2" sashing and 2" borders.
A Variable t-shirt
quilt is made by varying the size of the squares made from the
shirts. A variable style is ideal if you have shirts of various
sizes - this style allows you to incorporate various size shirt
blocks, smaller logos, such as pocket designs and smaller squares.
If you have t-shirts that are already cut, a variable style t-shirt
quilt is a good choice. Variation in the size of the blocks
makes the quilt more interesting. The pricing is based on a 14"
wide shirt block. These quilts also have 1 1/2" sashing
in between the blocks and 2" borders.
Pillows and pillow shams
with an envelope style back to slip your pillow in. They can be made to coordinate with your
quilt. Two to four shirts are usually enough for a pillow sham, and one
t-shirt is required for a throw pillow.
