Everyone has T-Shirt that they are unwilling to part with, whether it’s concert’s, school or sport’s. We take those T-Shirts and give them a new purpose, and we give you an opportunity to wear many of those shirts again – at the same time – and keep you warmer!

We ask that the shirts be laundered before being sent to us (including brand new shirts).  Just remember that stains on the shirts will show on the quilt.  Stains are NOT necessarily a bad thing. Usually, that just means that the shirt was well loved. Please send the shirts intact and we will cut the graphic out making sure that the graphic is centered as much as possible.

No, please allow us to cut your shirts. If there are special instructions you would like us to follow, please add a note to your shipment

Each quilt includes batting and is quilted all-over, for stability and aesthetics. We are one of the few t-shirt quilt companies that provides PROFESSIONAL quality quilting. Many just stitch the front and back together at the corners of each shirt or just around the edges.

We use a PROFESSIONAL long-arm machine that will stitch the whole quilt, and because we do this in house (some companies send them off to another company to get them quilted) we are able to get you your quilt completed a little faster.

ALL of our quilts are quilted with PROFESSIONAL quality quilting which is a very important feature that makes a t-shirt quilt last. This is a REAL quilt and not a quilt blanket.  You can expect it to last a lifetime!

Well, this comes in 2 sections:
  1. Washing – You have two choices here: hand washing or machine washing.
    • Machine Washing Instructions: Set your washing machine to a gentle cycle and choose cold water. I also recommend washing with a gentle detergent.
      • If you are nervous about fabric dye bleeding, throw in a couple of Shout Color Catchers or some Retayne. The Color Catchers literally catch dye that has bleed into the wash water. Retayne is a chemical that helps lock dye into the fabric. Read the packaging instructions before using it.
    • Hand Washing Instructions: I highly recommend washing all vintage quilts, hand-quilted quilts, and hand-appliquéd quilts by hand. No one is going to treat your quilt as well as you are, especially not some machine  The first step to hand washing is to make sure the tub or sink you will be using is clean. Next, fill-up with some cold water and dye-free, perfume-free detergent. Place your quilt in the water, and make sure every inch of it is submerged. Agitate the quilt gently for about 10 minutes, then drain the soapy water, and refill with fresh water. This time, add ½ cup of distilled white vinegar to the water. This clears the quilt of any residue from the detergent, and also softens it and keeps the colors bright! Repeat the rinsing process until the water is suds-free
  2. Drying – You’ve got two options again. You can also do a combination of both.
    • Machine Drying Instructions: Two very important words to remember here – LOW HEAT. Your quilt is delicate, so you will want to use low to no heat when drying it. To be safe, don’t dry it all the way. Tumble dry it on low until it is damp, and then let it air dry.
    • Air Drying Instructions: I highly recommend air drying all vintage quilts, hand-quilted/hand-appliquéd quilts, and any quilts in which you want to limit fabric shrinkage, which causes puckering and crinkling. Air drying quilts can be tricky because they’re so dang heavy when they’re wet! To prevent those threads from poppin’ support the weight of the quilt well, usually by drying it flat. For safe drying, some like to use a flat rack, but if you don’t have a giant quilt-drying rack, you can make a bed of thick towels to lay it on. To get some of the extra initial moisture out, cover your wet quilt with another set of towels, and roll it up in that towel sandwich for a good first squeeze. Then, place the quilt on another towel bed.
