Check the size before you buy a Traditional T-Shirt Quilt

In the world of T Shirt quilt makers the sizes are all over the place!

Browzing the internet I found a queen size traditional t-shirt quilt that measures 65 inches by 86 inches. Sixty five inches wide is a very narrow queen size bed! Those are the measurements of a long Twin size quilt.

We usually cut blocks 14 or 15 inches square. We can cut the blocks up to 22 inches if the design is large. If the design is larger than 22 inches we have several options:

  • Send us a replacement shirt.
  • Advise us on what part we can cut off. Sometimes there is a part of the design that if it is cut off it will not be noticeable. 
  • The other option is to make one row a little bigger than the others. We do this often and it gives a custom look to your t-shirt quilt.

It amazes me that customers are happy with their T-Shirt quilts that have letters cut off. I laughed out loud when a lady on Facebook proudly showed off her Clemson t-shirt quilt and one of the blocks said”C L E M S O”. Really? You and your shirts deserve better than that! That is the reason we don’t limit the designs to a set size. We look at your t-shirts and decide what size will work best.

When you order your t-shirt quilt we will not be able to give you a definite size until we see your t-shirts. If size is really important to you let us know. We can tweak it!
