So, How Much Will it Cost?

For a Traditional/Standard T-Shirt - or Premier Custom Quilt - One t-shirt block is $20 There is an additional $10 fee if the block is pieced from multiple shirts or front and backs.

Our pricing is all inclusive, which includes a great selection of fabrics for your one-of-a-kind quilt, all materials, custom professional machine quilting, tons of extra features to commemorate your t-shirt quilt.  You can choose from our in-house inventory of over 700 bolts of fabrics. We have basic tone-on-tone colors as well as a variety of trendy, modern and novelty prints. We also offer at no additional charge - an outer border. The outer border gives a finished look to the quilt.

New Lower-price Option!  We've had a number of requests for a simpler quilt design that more directly compares to our lower-priced competition.  If you prefer that simple look, just specify the "Basic" option for $18/block. Like all of our T-Shirt quilts, the price is all-inclusive.  But unlike our competition, you get a full 6" outer sashing around the entire quilt instead of the typical 2 or 3 inches! Please note that the optional accent border is NOT available on this option.

what is sashing? ALL of our T-Shirt Quilts include sashing and cornerstones***. A block is the front or back of a t-shirt. We can also use a combination of smaller logos, photos, ties or almost any fabric item you can think of for an additional minimal charge. We provide the backing and a high quality batting and then FULLY QUILT it together with your t-shirts on the front. 

We create only the highest quality quilts; therefore we do not recommend creating a quilt without the sashing fabric that separates the t-shirt blocks. The sashing fabric provides more stability to your quilt and is more aesthetically pleasing. If you prefer a quilt without the sashing fabric, please contact us to discuss this option. Cornerstones CAN be the same color as the sashing for a totally differnt look for no additional charge.

Each square finishes at approximately 14".  You can specify a different size to make the quilt fit your specifications.   Smaller sized t-shirts will result in smaller sized squares.  By the same token, larger squares will result in a larger quilt. If you have an over-abundance of tshirts, maybe go to a smaller sized block, and small sized sashing.

Some of the most common sizes are listed below.

Other Details

Any details that we may have talked about on the phone or via email should be noted on the order form. You are welcome to email the layout of the tshirts, but please note that on the form.

Combines - There is an extra $10.00 charge per block for 'simple' additional seams. A 'Simple seam' is one additional seam in the block. These include:

    • combining of 2 shirts (or a front and back) to make one block
    • combining small logos from different T-shirts to make one block
    • adding fabric behind v-neck (such as a Football Jersey)

Complex piecing. When more than one seam is involved, or creating a block out of odd shaped items, it requires more time to piece the block.

Minimum of $10 additional charge on these. These can include but are not limited to:

    • cheerleading V-front tops (these are usually pretty labor intensive to work with and usually run around $25 additional charge.)
    • enlarging a tanktop into a larger block
    • shorts
    • hats (we no longer do these)
    • sleeves

Extensive Fabric Prep - This usually applies to clothing that you bring to use that takes a lot of time to prep before we can use it. Clothing items like school uniforms and ties require time to prepare to be able to use in a quilt. While we don't mind offering this service, it is very time consuming and in order to keep our quilt prices competitive we have to charge extra for this. Charges are based on $20 hour.

Return Shipping for one quilt will be via USPS Priority mail and will be up to $25* per T-Shirt quilt. UPS or other shipping carriers are available for an additional charge.

*$15 for quilts being returned in the state of Texas. $12 for quilts in the Houston area.

Sales tax is charged for quilts going to any Texas address. If you are a non-profit organization, we can omit the sales tax with an authorized Tax ID form on file.

Deposit - A $100 down payment is required for each quilt and can be made by cash, check*, credit card or through PayPal. 

When your T-Shirt quilt(s) are complete, we will send an email requesting the final balance including the shipping** charge.  If you pay by check, please allow up to 10 days for the check to clear before we can ship your quilt(s).  If you use a credit card or Paypal, your quilt will ship the same or next day after receiving the notice of payment.

* Checks should be payable to "T-Shirt Quilts of Texas".

what is sashing?***Sashing is a colored strip of 100% cotton fabric between each square. It typically coordinates with the backing color you select. We include sashing and cornerstones at no additional charge. Cornerstones are squares of fabric that are pieced within the sashing and fit in at the corners of the blocks. (see the bright green square in the photo at left). Click on photo to see details.

We pride ourselves on quick, professional service. Our average turn time is 4 weeks. If you want to guarantee delivery in less than 4 weeks, please add a $50 rush fee per quilt, plus you may need to pay for overnight shipping.

Our 'busiest' times are prior to May graduation and the Christmas holidays so it might take a little longer. Be sure to let us know if you have a specific deadline that we need to meet.
