Turning memories into a twin size quilt

Easily preserve all your t-shirts you no longer use by turning them into a twin size t-shirt quilt. Rather then have those special memories take up important space or collect dust somewhere, why not showcase them in a twin size quilt?

In this blog post you'll find the process of turning t-shirts into 14" panel twin size quilt!

Choosing your T-Shirts

Every t-shirt carries a memory. Over the years you collect lots of them, but after time they become worn. Maybe they don't fit anymore, maybe the style has gone out, or maybe you just stopped wearing them. 

Pull together those old t-shirts, whether their from college, high school, family vacations, or concerts, and put them into a twin size quilt!

T-Shirts, Sweatshirts, and many more

Just because you're making a t-shirt quilt, doesn't mean that you're limited to using only t-shirts! Sweatshirts, polos, and jerseys can go into your twin size quilt. 

Button down, shirts with zippers, scrubs, and many other items can also be used! For a full list of our recommended materials, click here.

Picking your quilt options

There are so many different t-shirt quilt options to choose from. There are different sizes, panel sizes, backing options, and even batting and long-arm stitching!

For larger graphics, and about 24 shirts, we recommend our twin size t-shirt quilt with 14" panels (see graphic below).
