Before your order, don’t forget:

  • From all the T-Shirts and sweat shirts you have on hand, choose the number of t-shirts you’ll be providing for your quilt (looking on the Frequently Asked Questions page to find the estimated number of t-shirts for your quilt sizes).
  • Now, count the t-shirt blocks..ie; a front, a back, a sleeve… each one is a t-shirt block in your count!
  • We’ll use the designs, logos and pictures on your shirts (and avoid using advertisements when possible unless you tell us otherwise).
  • If you don’t want a particular portion of the shirt used, make sure you mark it clearly by placing blue painters tape (you can get that at WalMart for cheap, cheap) over it so I know NOT to use that portion of the shirt.
  • DO NOT cut your shirts yourself. Sorry, but we get to have that fun… It’s one of the perks we get for making your quilt for you… We need to be able to do that to ensure the quilt is built properly with several block size variations so your quilt has a lot of interest to it!! It’s the unexpected movement in the quilt that makes them so fun to look at.
  • Please wash your shirts, but don’t use fabric softener or dryer sheets. They make the shirts more difficult to manage.
  • Place your clean, dry, marked and folded t-shirts in a trash bag along with your order form and check and ship to me. (Please don’t go to the trouble of ironing, it doesn’t make any difference as we will just be cutting them when they arrive). If they are colors that you think will run in the wash or are new t-shirts, please for your sake and the sake of your quilt wash them several times.
  • You’ll be asked to indicate your preferred color of backing – blue, green, red,yellow,pink, purple and maroon. If there is a particular color you would like, indicate it on the order form and we’ll try to find it for you. If you want some funky color or you have a particular fabric in mind that’s just fine. Bottom line, we just want you to LOVE your quilt and are here for YOU!!!
  • We ask for 1/2 of the cost of the quilt up front with your order in the form of a check. When your quilt is completed we’ll contact you with the final cost of your quilt. This will just be your last 1/2 of the cost of your quilt plus shipping. Once final payment is received we’ll ship your quilt out to you… YAY!!!
  • Add sales tax to the estimated cost (multiply your subtotal by 1.0825).
  • It will take several weeks to complete your quilt once we begin  your quilt, not when it is received! So if your box arrives for instance Oct.1 this does NOT mean it will ship out Nov.1. This is a first come first serve business, so when your turn comes up it is several weeks from THAT date that you will receive your quilt, plus shipping time of course. This is very important to understand. Not from the time you submit your order on-line or from the time you ship your order to us.
  • Please call so I can let you know an estimate of how many orders are ahead of you if you are on a hard deadline. I’m happy to let you know before you ship.
  • Extra time is rare but if you have special requests for placement of t-shirts this DOES take longer in the design of your quilt top so your quilt can take a little longer.  Now, having said that there are 2 exceptions to this rule… (isn’t that the way it always seems to be)..LOL
  • They are graduation time in the spring (March-May) and Christmas time (August-December), which are two very busy times of the year for us. As Martha would say “It’s a good thing”.
  • If you need the quilt rushed, tell us. We’ll see what we can do to make sure you receive it in time. I promise we will do everything in our power to get it back to you by your desired date. But please realize, these are hand-made quilts and not mass produced blankets from a factory.You MUST give us ample time to make your quilt and ship it back to you!!!
  • Remember: special occasions (graduation and Christmas especially) are our busiest times. Make sure to order your quilt well in advance.We fill up quickly : )
  • If you have any other questions, don’t hesitate to e-mail us anytime at Gotquiltz@aol.com.
