Frequently Asked Questions

How long does it take to get my finished quilt?

On average it takes 6-8 weeks to complete a quilt a little longer if you want additional quits, but please order early around Christmas time (July-December) as it will take longer because of the higher volume of orders.

What are the prices for each size of quilt?

Since each quilt configuration is different the prices vary.  Quilt prices depend on what type of quilt is selected and what options are chosen for the quilt. The order form found at the bottom of each quilt type will automatically generate a custom quilt price based upon the size and options that are selected so you know the exact cost of your custom quilt.  A general list of quilt prices can be found on the Memory Quilt Price page.

What are your payment options?

You can order online using your credit card through PayPal (you do not need to have a PayPal account to use your credit card). Checks are also accepted and will be cleared through your bank before the project begins.

Are the quilts quilted?

All quilts are quilted using an attractive quilt stitch on the seams.

Do you put a backing on the t-shirt/clothing articles?

We iron on a backing to all the t-shirt/clothing items.  This gives the fabric strength and makes the quilt soft and plush.

Are the quilts washable?

Your quilt will be as durable and washable as the clothing that you have given us to construct the quilt.  We recomment washing in cold water.

What is different about Quilt Keepsake than other tshirt quilt companies?

At Quiltkeepsake we understand that these tshirts are special and often times irrecplacable.  We work hard to incorporate all the elements of the tshirt into the quilt.  We spend time designing and figuring out the best possible layout for the quilt rather than just forcing the design into a standard 4x4 or 6x6 grid.  We try our best to not cut off or crop any part of the art work of the tshirt and make sure that obvious visual pieces are retained and displayed on the quilt.  Ultimately, we want to produce a quilt that honors the memories and experiences of our customers and gives them a quilt they will be proud to display and use for years.
