T-SHIRT QUILTS: Age of recipient, and size of quilt may determine the design of a t-shirt quilt. 12 to 14 inch squares are typically used. Sashing may or may not be wanted. There are lots of choices about colors, size, and design of the quilt. A “throw size” of 3 t-shirt blocks wide by 4 t-shirt blocks high may average around $280 for me to cut, sew, interface the t-shirt blocks and quilt. This includes me furnishing batting, and backing. Remember Tennessee sales tax is 9.25% in addition. Hopefully this will get you started. Calling me is always okay.
MEMORY QUILTS: I can use fabrics from your deceased loved one’s wardrobe. If you like, I can choose some articles of clothing (preferably cotton) or linens together for me to cut and piece into a design. The star quilt in the Gallery is a memory quilt in honor of the mother of my neighbor. These are very meaningful quilts, and may take up to 40 hours, at $12 per hour, of my time to create. Generations to come will enjoy them.
NEW BABY: Because baby quilts often don’t last very long, people don’t want to spend too much on them. Can’t say I blame you. However, for a special baptism or an heirloom quality quilt that will be preserved over the years, $200 is not an unreasonable investment. Hopefully, this is a starting place for our discussion. Call me.
GRADUATE: We all love quilts for “comfort” -- think about the graduate going away from home, taking something of you with them!
BRIDE: Heirloom, history, lots of love invested in your top, in her favorite colors.
WIFE: $750 to $1500 -- Beautiful quilts for someone who has blessed your life! From art quilt designs to traditional piecework.
Note: The design and piecing of the quilt top results in a “labor” charge of $12 per hour. This includes cutting up shirts or materials presented to me, interfacing light-weight or stretchy materials so they can be sewn straight, sewing, pressing, and assembling the quilt top. After this initial labor charge, the costs of quilting is added.
