FAQs

Quilt Specs: Information about Your Quilt

Do you use batting and a decorative stitch on top?

No and No. Our fleece backed t-shirt quilts are lightweight, comfy, cozy and fluffy enough without all that. We do add a twin needle top stitch along seam lines on the MOSAIC design.

How do I know what size to order for a mosaic style quilt?

We have a suggested number of tees for each size on the Mosaic product page.  It really depends on the sizes of your logos.  If we need to adjust the size once we start working on your quilt we will let you know.

Can you transfer a photo to a T-shirt to be included in my quilt?

No but you can and we would be happy to include it in your t-shirt quilt. Most large drugstore photo labs can do that for you.

Can I send in other types of shirts besides T-shirts?

Sure, send jerseys, Dri- fit, sweatshirt, button downs, even jeans.  Basically anything that is machine washable can be included.

Do you secure the front of the quilt to the back?

Absolutely! We sew the front of the quilt to the back by machine stitching along the border.  We do not just tack by hand the front to the back. The sides are always machine sewn but if you like the tied edge look we can add that outside of the sewn edge.

Do you use other material beside fleece?

No. We LOVE fleece.

Can you help me finish/fix a quilt that has already been started?

We would love to try. Our mosaic style tshirt quilt is great for tees that have already been cut.

Can I see a layout of my t-shirt quilt before you sew it?

Of course! Choose YES when placing your order and we will email you a picture for approval before we cut & sew so be sure to check your email! We will text a reminder to check your email if we do not hear from you.

Do I have to wash or cut my shirts before I send them?

Wash, yes. Cut, NO! Its OK if you already cut your tees but if possible, try not too! Especially for the Mosaic design. We will need all parts of your tees to make your tshirt quilt. Find out why on the MOSAIC product page.

Do I have to choose the color and/or pattern of fleece material used to make my quilt?

Nope, you can leave it up to us to make your blanket look fabulous or you can choose yourself by clicking on the Fleece Samples page. If you would like us to help you decide, just indicate you would like us to offer our suggestions in the Fleece Color(s)/ Pattern memo box when ordering your quilt. If you already know what color(s)/ pattern you would like, just type it in the memo box and we will contact you if we have any problems with your choice. Rest assured we will contact you to discuss before starting your quilt.

Do I have to choose the style of quilt or size of my quilt....or can you do that for me?

Just give us a call or shoot us an email and we can help you decide. 407-417-3509

Can I use the front and the back of my T-shirts or a pocket or sleeve in my memory quilt?

Of course, Use a sharpie to mark on the neckline of the t-shirt either F (use Front), B (use Back), or FB (use Front and Back). If you have additional notes or requests please write them on the order form that you print and include in the box with your Ts.

Can you put smaller logos or pictures together to form one square?

Yes! We do it all the time.

Is embroidery an option?

 

 

Yes!  For $35 we can add up to 60 characters (including spaces).  However, we suggest to keep message short for best results.  The longer the message, the smaller the font.

If you did not add embroidery during ordering process, it’s not too late…..we can email you an invoice.

What if my logos are larger than standard 12" square?

If you definitely want to go with the Original style quilt, a bigger square can be used, usually 15x15.    Another option if you have several larger logos is to look at the Mosaic style blanket.  We will contact you to discuss the options.
