About Too Cool T-shirt Quilts

There Is a Better Way to Make a T-shirt Quilt!

Since 1992, we have innovated and challenged the status quo. 


It Began With One Bag of T-shirts in 1992...

From that bag came a quilt that was radically, but simply different from any other T-shirt quilt of the time. 

  • The Blocks were cut to fit the graphics.
  • Iron-on backing wasn’t used to stiffen the T-shirts, so the quilt was soft.
  • No sashing was used in-between the shirts.

From these three major innovations, Too Cool T-shirt Quilts emerged and has grown into a voice challenging the T-shirt quilt world:

“There is a better way to make a T-shirt quilt!”

About Andrea Funk

Andrea Funk, the inventor of T-shirt quilts made with multiple block sizes, made her first quilt when she was 5 years old. She never stopped making them. In 1992 she founded Too Cool T-shirt Quilts. Her life has been immersed in T-shirt quilts ever since. 


When do you stop learning? It took Andrea an undergrad degree in Communications, a Master's in Communications, a Master's in Graphic Design, a Military Journalism degree and a CPCU insurance degree to decided enough is enough. However she continues learning everyday. She did a pretty bang up job on this website.

Teaching the Too Cool Method

Andrea shares the Too Cool method in a the book How to Make a Too Cool T-shirt Quilt. She also has a series of video teaching the method.
