  2. Why It’s Important to Plan Ahead for Your T-Shirt Quilt

    As I have mentioned in previous blogs, the Katy T-Shirt Quilts work force consists of my husband and me.  We like to give personal attention to every order and there are only so many hours that the two of us can work.  We work long hours around Christmas and graduations in May and June, but we still are unable to fulfill everyone's request at those times of the year.  It is really disappointing…Read More

  6. How to Care for Your T-Shirt Quilt

    One of the questions often asked when a customer picks up his T-Shirt Quilt is, “Can I wash it?” This is an important question because many of the T-Shirt Quilts are for young people heading to college where they will get a lot of use and possibly the dreaded spill or two.

  7. Show Your Team Spirit with a T-Shirt Quilt.

    As hot as it’s been, it’s hard to believe that it’s time to head back to school. And that means it’s time for football games. My favorite high school memories were going to football games and rooting for my team. I loved the smell of fall in the air, but it often got pretty chilly up in the stands at night. So I would take a quilt or two with me to wrap up in and share with friends. What c…Read More
