Our memory quilts and wall hangings use your T-shirts to create a unique keepsake. Designs, patterns, fabric, and themes combine to create a one-of-a-kind momento. You provide the T-shirts and as much or little design input as you would like. Select from multiple quilt styles, fabric patterns and colors or let us suggest something.

The size of the quilt depends on the quilt style and the number and size of shirts used. Although many of our designs are custom, most are based on a common block size.

We currently offer the following basic styles:


Style 1

Style 1 uses a grid. T-shirts blocks are bordered by one-inch sashing. The inner inner border is integrated with this sashing and is made using the same fabric. The design is finished with a traditional border and binding. The sashing is accented at the intersections using 1-inch squares made from the border fabric. This style usually uses T-shirt blocks all the same size. Typically, this is a 12-inch square. It requires 2, 3, 4, 6, 9, 12, 15, 16, or 20 T-shirts (larger sizes by request).

Options using different size T-shirt blocks are available. However, deviations really depend on the size and number of T-shirts used. You can see some custom examples in our Gallery or Design Process pages.


Style 2

Style 2 creates a frame around each T-shirt block and forms a grid of quilt blocks. The design is finished with a traditional inner border, border, and binding. This style requires that all T-shirt blocks be the same size. Typically, this is a 12-inch square. It requires 2, 3, 4, 6, 9, 12, 15, 16, or 20 T-shirts (larger sizes by request).

This style allows the use of multiple fabrics/colors for the frame. This design is best showcased with two contrasting colors as shown in the example. Contact us directly for special pricing considerations for designs using more than two colors.


Style 3

Style 3 frames each T-shirt block on point. This style requires that all T-shirt blocks be the same size. Typically, this is a 12-inch square. Due to the offset pattern, it allows for 5, 8, 11, 13, or 18 T-shirts (larger sizes by request). The design is finished with a traditional inner border, border, and binding.

This style allows the use of multiple fabrics/colors for the triangles. We usually use two different colors as shown in the example, but additional fabrics and colors can be used. This can really affect the symmetrical look of the pattern and can also have special pricing considerations.


Style 4

Style 4 allows for T-shirt blocks of various sizes. The size of the quilt and number of T-shirts required depends on the individual sizes of the T-shirt blocks. The design uses sashing to separate strips of T-shirt blocks and is finished with a traditional border and binding.

Creating this type of quilt is really a custom process. There are many factors that determine the final design and some T-shirts may not work.

Although a custom order, this type of quilt is typically not complex. Don't be concerned with the fact that it is a custom design. It can be quite affordable and really provides a very unique keepsake.
