Our Crazy Quilt t-shirt quilt is a truly unique keepsake with a kaleidoscope of squares and rectangles focusing in on special parts of each shirt. Instead of being priced per shirt, this quilt is priced based on the final square footage of the quilt. Each shirt backed with a fusible interfacing and then specially cut with our templates to capture the important parts of your shirt. Then all the final square sizes and amounts are entered into a special formula to tell us the estimated final size of the quilt. Then the tricky part comes as the final layout is like a puzzle to get those cut pieces to fit the end size. Finally, each piece is individually sewn together before we back and do the final quilting of the quilt. With all that being said this is our most time-consuming style of quilt, but it ends up as a true masterpiece in the end. This mixture of shapes comes together to create a truly unique quilt. Below you will find a guide on roughly how many shirts will make up a determined sizes quilt. Please note that these are approximations, and we will get you the actual final square footage before we start assembling your quilt.
