On average, it takes 10 -16 weeks to complete a quilt a little longer if you want additional quits, but please, order early around Christmas time (September - December) as it will take longer because of the higher volume of orders.
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.

All quilts are quilted using an attractive stitch on the seams and through the clothing pieces items to ensure they stay in place.
We use iron-on interfacing onto all the t-shirt/clothing items. This gives the fabric strength and in our experience helps the quilt stay looking nice after a few months of use and washing and is still makes a very soft and plush quilt.
Your quilt will be as durable and washable as the clothing that you have given us to construct the quilt. We recommend washing in cold water.
Once we receive your order we will contact you by email within two days to confirm the specifics of your quilt and let you know where to ship your clothing package.
At Quiltkeepsake we understand that these t-shirts are special and often times irreplaceable. We work hard to incorporate all the elements of the t-shirt 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 artwork of the t-shirt 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.
Yes, we can use sweatshirts. Once they are in your quilt, it's difficult to tell them apart from T-shirts.
We also can use jersey material - the knit material with holes in it that is used in some football and hockey jerseys
