Frequently Asked Questions

quilts made from t-shirts

What sizes work best for quilts made from t-shirts? Adult shirt sizes work best for quilts made from t-shirts. Adult medium and smaller, including youth sizes, work best for pillows. Larger sizes tend to be too big.

Can I use sweatshirts? Sweatshirts, tank tops, jerseys can also be used for quilts.  Any clothing can be used to make squares or appliqués. Baby clothing also makes an adorable baby clothing quilt.

Should I wash my shirts? Please send CLEAN t-shirts. Clothing should be washed using unscented detergents and dryer sheets. Spots add character, so don’t worry!

What is your return policy?  Due to the custom nature of our memory t-shirt quilts and pillows, they are not returnable or refundable.

How do you know what part of my shirt to use? Use the Square Marker Form to let us know your preferences. Please pin (do not tape) the squares to any specific shirt part you want used. Without a note, we will use the front shirt logo. If there is no front, we will use the back. If there is a small part of the shirt you want used, please indicate this with a Square Marker or we use any part of the shirt that makes a great design.

Should I cut my shirts? DO NOT cut your shirts please.  If you have any t-shirts with printing on the sleeve or back that you would like to use in the quilt, please pin a Square Marker to the shirt indicating any special instructions.
