Choosing a T-Shirt Quilt Maker

Choosing a t-shirt quilt maker can be overwhelming! There are hundreds of t-shirt quilt makers on the internet. Here are seven points to consider as you search for the best shop to design and make your t-shirt quilt. 1. How long has the shop/company been making T-shirt quilts?

Shipping your t-shirt quilt to you is a very important part of our business. Package theft is on the rise.

Mosaic T-shirt quilts-Can you use Baby Clothes?

We get this question a lot. The short answer is No. We can use a few baby clothes in a Mosaic style T-shirt quilt but we can not make the whole quilt with baby/toddler clothes. And here is why.
