This quilt was a custom order created for Sewscrappy. Many novelty sports fabrics were incorporated into the quilt in addition to the t-shirts, creating a great memory quilt for an athletic teen-age boy.

I take a great deal of pride in my quilts and strive to make your order as special and personalized as possible. The process is simple; you send me the shirts and I provide everything else including the backer fabric!

I use quality cotton fabrics and apply a fusible stabilizer to all t-shirts blocks which prevents stretching and loss of shape but still leaves the t-shirt fabrics soft and comfortable. I generally border each block with a different fabric to add color and interest although I can use as many or as few colors as a customer wants. I machine quilt in a meandering pattern only on the border fabrics so that the t-shirt designs remain prominent. The batting I use is Warm and Natural, a thinner batting that holds up much better than synthetics through multiple washings. My bindings are sewn on by hand. I have much experience with photo transfers and can make photos a part of the quilt too at a minimal additional charge.

The following is a very good estimate for pricing a project. The number of designs given means the number of blocks. For example a shirt with both a back and front that are going to be used counts as TWO designs. If all of the designs are very large or very small the information below may need to be adjusted. The design numbers given tend to be a maximum. If you want a larger quilt with fewer designs, it's definitely possible. Just ask and I will provide an exact quote.

Pricing:

King 96" x 100" $550 44-52 designs
Queen 96" x 82" $450 36-44 designs
Full 90" x 76" $410 30-36 designs
X-Long Twin 96" x 60" $350 26-30 designs
Twin 90" x 60" $325 22-26 designs
Large Throw 70" x 60" $275 16-22 designs
Small Throw 60" x 50" $225 10-16 designs
