Does any one make tshirt quilts? I have some tshirts from my son growing up and I want to put them into a quilt. I wont be ready for it to be made until a year or so. Does any one know how to do this and how much it will cost. I can't sew.

I make them. For a quilt with 16 shirts and dashing I charge $250. It's not too hard to do. Just very time consuming and it has to be precise.

I am just learning to quilt and am looking forward to making oe for my daughter in a few years. Good luck finding some help. I know they are costly because of the time it akes to make them.

I'll have to get more shirts. Lol that's why I'm waiting because I want one from high school next year. Do they have to be the same size? I have many different sizes.

You can make them different sizes. I've made all mine the same size. Just to make the math easier. Just make sure to use some sort of backing on the shirts so they won't stretch.

I made one for my SIL and her husband for christmas using the work shirts from where they met. I posted here a few months back. Its the first one shown.

I didn't find it all that difficult to be honest, but then again there are much better ones out there, and mine was pretty simple. It just required a lot of reinforcing the stretchy fabrics to reduce streching. It wound up being about queen size and I used the front and back of 11 large and xlarge shirts.

Good luck with yours!
