Gift a Quilt requires 1/2 of each quilt cost be paid before production of your quilt can begin. The remainder before your quilt can be delivered. Fabric cost per quilt changes depending on the complexity of the pattern that you chose. Each quilt has a minimum of $125.00 in Fabric, Batting, and Backing. The amount of love given to the person you have chosen who is currently fighting cancer depends on the size of the quilt you order.
Before sending your T-shirts to me please ensure that they are washed and dried! I do not want any stinky T-shirts to work with. If I have to wash your T-shirts an additional $25 fee will be assessed. Using a piece of chalk number your T-shirts in the order you would like them used in. The numbering does not affect the design of the quilt only the importance of the T-shirt. For example, T-shirt labeled with a #1 will definitely be used. T-shirt labeled with a #15 will be used if there is room on your T-shirt quilt.

A complex pattern such as a Double Wedding Ring, or other complex pattern will be a minimum of $700.00 due to the amount of fabric that has to be purchased to make the more complex patterns is between $400.00 and $500.00 and up for a Queen Size.
You are welcome to purchase the fabric for your quilt on your own, and mail it to Gift a Quilt, along with a copy of the receipt with the store name and fabric cost on the receipt. Gift a Quilt will adjust the cost of your quilt accordingly. However, this will result in the amount of love given to the cancer patient that you have chosen, being lesser, or possibly more. Depending on what you have spent on fabric if Gift a Quilt has to purchase any additional fabrics.
So if you feel that Gift a Quilt prices are too high, I agree with you. If you feel you should get a discount because we are friends, or we went to school together, or even because we have worked together. You are absolutely right. However, every discount takes away from the love given to the person you have chosen who is currently fighting cancer. If you chose not to chose a cancer patient, one will be chosen for you. Gift a Quilt is sorry, this is not an option. Every quilt with a profit of $100 or more helps someone fighting cancer.

In the early 1980s nearly every T-shirt that was worn in America was made in America by Americans. Unfortunately, because of social, environmental and political agendas textile mills were closed down, and thousands of textile jobs were forced to go overseas.
The average American disposes of approximately 65 pounds of clothing in one years’ time, and 5% of the trash that is disposed of is in the form of textiles. Before you dispose of any shirts or T-shirts and increase the environmental impact why not turn those old T-shirts and the memory keepsakes!
T-Shirt Quilts and Memory Quilts make for awesome anniversary gifts, high school and college graduation gifts, Christmas gifts and even birthdays. T-shirt quilts can be used for wall decorations, bedcovers, furniture drapes or even a warm and cozy cover while you're watching TV.
To further enhance your T-shirt quilts I can add in embroidery such as names and anniversary dates. Additionally, I can print pictures (8 x 10) on fabric paper to further enhance the personalization of your T-shirt quilt.
In the above pricing chart, I have given recommended amounts, however; the amount of T-shirts is very broad. It depends on the size of images on the T-shirts. If I have left over T-shirts from your T-shirt quilt, I will contact you and ask what you would like to do with them. Most of the time I send them back with the finished quilt. However, sometimes people like to add in a wall hanging or throw quilt (for an additional cost).
Backing your t-shirt quilt is part of customizing it. I can back your quilt with nearly anything you would like for example tie-dye fabric, fleece fabric, flannel, solid colors or different prints the choice is up to you.
