My t-shirt quilts are made with no sashing (fabric border), no stabilizers (which makes them harder to sew, but softer to cuddle with), and no pre-made patterns. Each quilt is individually designed based on YOUR memories! Extra-special shirts can be featured, and every print can be used including sleeve prints and pocket prints. 100% quilters' cotton (flannel available upon request) is used for the backing and binding, and 100% natural cotton batting is used between layers for a soft, long-lasting quilt. You may request backing/binding colors, or let me choose. T-shirt quilts are quilted along seams, with interior quilting for reinforcement in large blocks. Baby's First Year quilts are quilted along seams and may have interior quilting for reinforcement.

Already cut your shirts? No problem. I prefer shirts uncut (and clean!), but it is possible to work with previously cut shirts. Some of the prints do end up "cropped" depending on how they were cut. Take a look at the School Days quilt to get an idea!

Quilts are started upon receipt of both t-shirts and deposit. Quilts take 2-3 weeks to create once started, plus shipping time. Please convo if you are on a deadline for a gift! Multiple listings per item are available for group gift purchases.
