What are T-shirt Quilts?
T-shirt quilts are a great way to use and preserve a collection of short or long-sleeved shirts to tell a story in the form of a quilt. School, athletic, concert, college, special event, and personalized shirts make awesome t-shirt quilt items that can be pieced and sewn together to make an eye-catching and cozy quilt that will last for years.
How Many T-shirts Are Needed For a Quilt?
The number of shirts needed depends on the type and size of the quilt you order. For example, our most popular size (Twin Size: 63 inches. by 87 inches.) needs 25 t-shirts. Generally, you need about 12-15 shirts for a throw-size quilt and up to 60 shirts for our king-size quilt. Please refer to our sizing page to see the various quilt dimensions and the number of clothing items needed for each size.
We will work with you to ensure whatever size is needed to have a great-looking design and layout that works with the number of clothing items you have available. You can also view our t-shirt quilt gallery page and get an idea of what other customers have provided.
