T-Shirt and Memory Quilts

IMG_9442 (1).jpg

Want a great way to show off those T-shirts and sweatshirts that you’ve collected over the years?


Let us make them into a quilt for you to use in the bedroom, family room, or to hang on the wall. 

For your sports fan, how about a wall hanging made from 12 shirts they want to show off but don’t wear? Why not send your college student off on their new adventure with a “Little piece of Home” by making a throw-size quilt from their high school activity shirts so they can wrap themselves in them while studying or missing home. I have made quilts from the following types of shirts: Pro and college sports teams, children’s school activities, Harley shirts, runners shirts, motor scooter clubs, sorority shirts, vacation travel shirts, hockey jerseys, and the list goes on.

To make a t-shirt quilt, all you have to do is bring or mail me 9 to 49 shirts, t-shirts, sweatshirts, jerseys, etc., and I do all the work. I will cut, lay out, sew together, add backing and batting and then quilt them. Borders and sashing may be added if you want. Above are the 2 styles of quilts I make-block or collage style.  Which one do you like best?  I am looking forward to making one for you.

***If using both sides of a double sided t-shirt that counts as 2- if you have 10 double sided t-shirts and you want both sides used it counts as 20 shirts

Memory Quilts

A beautiful quilt made from family member's clothing is a cherished memory that will last a lifetime. When I first opened my longarm business, I finished traditional quilt tops.  I was soon hired to make some T-Shirt quilts and I really enjoyed making them! I recently offered to make Memory Quilts for a friend who had lost her husband and realized it is such a great way to remember a loved one. Memory quilts can include any type of clothing -not just shirts! Below are my most popular sizes and prices.
