  • T-Shirt Quilts
    Quilts made from T-shirts are very popular, and we can make a quilt from most any shirt, including Seahawks, Mariners, Sounders, and other popular shirt designs.

We do this using simple stitching techniques; stippling, meandering, loops and swirls, waves, flowers, hearts and stars. We carry a large selection of thread. Our goal is to maintain a maximum turnaround time of two weeks often less.

Finally, in an effort to make machine quilting affordable to most quilters as well as remain profitable, we have set our price at a competitive $.02 per square inch.

Preparing your Quilt for Longarm Quilting

  • Trim all loose threads front and back of your quilt top.
  • Iron your top and backing with all seams pressed to one side or open.
  • You do not need to baste or pin the top, backing and batting. I do that one layer at a time on the machine.
  • Please cut your backing and batting 3-4 inches larger than your quilt top on all four sides.  This step is very important.
  • Please trim your backing so the top and bottom are straight.
  • Try not to have wavy or ruffled borders, as they are difficult to work out when quilting.

T-shirt Quilts
T-shirt quilts are very popular and make a special gift to mark milestones/events in one's life.  Price is determined by number of t-shirts. Typically they run $300-$500. Please bring clean and uncut t-shirts

You still have time to get your T-shirt quilt to me.
