Frequently Asked Questions

Q. Can I use the front and back of a t-shirt?

Absolutely. Most people send me a mix of t-shirts - I use front, back, or both sides, depending on what you would prefer.

Q. Does it have to be t-shirts? Can I send sweatshirts, polos, sports jerseys, etc.?

I can incorporate almost any fabric into the quilt. I've created handkerchief quilts, tie quilts, I've even included HS letters and other non-conventional items in a quilt (see below).

Q. Can I design the quilt myself?
