How Many T-shirts?

It’s hard to say! The list here is only an approximation of the number of T-shirts, sweatshirts or other clothing items it may take to make a quilt of that size.

You may need more T-shirts if the designs on the T-shirts are small. Or you may need fewer if the designs are big. Count each T-shirt you have as one, whether it has a design just on the front or a design on the front and back. The more T-shirts you have with fronts and backs means you will need to be lower end on the approximate number needed. If you have T-shirts with small designs on just one side, you will need more T-shirts.

Generally, we take the number of T-shirts you send and cut them. Then we determine what size quilt those T-shirts could make. We will e-mail you and tell you the dimensions of the quilt that these T-shirts can make. At this time you can accept the dimensions of the quilt or you can add or remove T-shirts so the quilt is the size you would like.

*Note that we can make your quilt what ever size your T-shirts will allow. So you might have a quilt that is in between standard sizes. What ever size your quilt is, the size will be divisible by four.

**Another Note - Concert T-shirts tend to have large designs on the front and backs of them. They almost go two to one of typical T-shirts. So keep that in mind when you are counting out your T-shirts.
