What’s it all about? Are you a DIY person that has a little experience with a sewing machine? If so, you too can make a t-shirt quilt. We here at Quilt My Shirts have a lot of pricey equipment to sail through the volume of quilts we do each year. But if you have an iron, a square ruler (15″), rotary cutter with mat, along with good sewing machine there’s a good chance you can make the same style quilt we sell here at Quilt My Shirts.
I’m in the process of designing a line of quilt patterns for the quilting industry and it dawned on me that I should probably make a pattern to show how we construct these t-shirt quilts here at our shop. No, I don’t hold a patent on how these quilts should be done, but with over 20 years of constructing them, I have learned some tips and tricks along the way. With a little patience and tenacity, you too can make one yourself.
Once the quilt top is made there are a few ways you can get it into a quilt. You could tie it (which I do not recommend), you could wrangle it on your domestic machine to quilt it, or you can send it off to a longarm quilter to have them complete it. In our slower season, we accept DIY t-shirt quilts, if they have used our pattern and techniques. Our price is .02/sq in.
