If you are planning a T-shirt quilt, here are 8 choices you will need to make about your quilt before you find a quilt maker.

A blanket has nothing holding the front to the back (see photo to the right) where as a quilt has quilting holding the three layers together. Read more about the differences and why it's important to know which one is right for you.
