♥ ♥ Do you want to recycle all those sentimental t-shirts you've been saving? How about a T-Shirt Memory Quilt?
They make great gifts for Graduation, Going off to College, Retirement, Sport Fans, Anniversaries. They will become a treasured heirloom.
They also make a nice memorial of loved ones that have passed.
The photos are of quilts I've done recently. Yours will be made with your own special shirts.
My quilts are complete as shown, with cotton batting, sashing and backing (hand dyed or flannel if preferred), machine quilting and binding. I use only high quality materials. My quilts aren't tied as many you see. They are machine quilted. The double binding is sewn to the front, turned and hand sewn to the back.
YOUR QUILT WILL BE MADE WITH 20 SHIRTS OR PIECES OF GARMENTS. Each square will be about 12 inches. The finished size will be about 56 x 70 inches which is a nice size lap quilt or wall hanging.
Other sizes are available.
The size and cost depend on how many shirts you have and how big you want the quilt to be. Each square or shirt is 12 inches. 14 inch squares can be used for a small additional charge.
16 shirts = @ 56" x 56" (Lap or wall hanging size) $225
20 shirts = @ 56" x 70" (Lap size) $255
24 shirts = @ 56" x 82" $285

See my other listings for specific sizes and prices or email me for more info. Memory quilts can also be made using other garments as well as t shirts. I've used little girl dresses, hawaiian shirts, baby clothes, grandpa's flannel shirts...
Once you make your make your purchase, I'll contact you with instructions to ship your clean shirts to me. Be sure the shirts are freshly laundered as shirts that have been laying around tend to be soiled, discolored or have an odor.
Once I receive them and we've discussed color theme and preference for sashing and backing, I'll proceed to cut and stabilize the shirts, assemble, quilt and bind your quilt. I'll keep you posted on my progress. Please allow 4 to 6 weeks to receive your completed quilt but most are ready in 3 to 5 weeks.
Once your quilt is complete, I'll ship it back to you Priority Mail. You are responsible for return shipping which usually runs about $25 within the Continental US.
Your quilt will arrive nicely packaged in tissue and tied with a big bow.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns, either before making your decision to purchase or after.
This quilt will be lovingly made in my NON SMOKING, PET FRIENDLY home!
I look forward to working with you! ♥ ♥
