1. Why You Should Choose Katy T-Shirt Quilts

    At Katy T-Shirt Quilts, the bulk of our business is local because we are located in a very large metropolitan area.  However, we do receive t-shirts from all over the United States.  People are often fearful of sending out their precious t-shirts and prefer to find someone local.  But because making t-shirt quilts is such a specialized business, it's not always possible to find a local quilter …Read More

  2. New Idea for T-Shirt Quilts

    I'm always looking for fresh new ideas for T-shirt quilts and sometimes the inspiration comes from a customer.  I recently made this T-shirt quilt for a customer who wanted something a little different.  She brought a picture of a friend's quilt to show me what she wanted.  I found border fabric online and then ordered a couple of "jelly rolls" to go with the border fabric.  Jelly rolls are pr…Read More

  3. Family, Football and T-Shirt Quilts

    This is my favorite time of year. We just got back from a family reunion in Louisiana and the weather was perfect, the food was plentiful (too plentiful actually), and we got to enjoy time with aunts, uncles, cousins and grandkids. I didn’t take a quilt to auction off this year, but we’ve been asked to contribute something that we made ourselves for next year’s auction. Since the Louisiana S…Read More

  4. T-Shirt Quilts for Fundraisers

    The air is finally getting cooler and many schools, churches and charities are having Fall Festivals and fundraisers. I’m attending a family reunion this weekend where we have an auction to raise money to pay for the facilities. The quilt pictured on the left is one that I made for a previous reunion.  It’s a great time of to get out and enjoy the weather and the fun and to help out by either…Read More

  5. Quality T-Shirt Quilts by a Team of Two

    I’m sometimes asked if I have other people helping me make T-shirt quilts. There are T-shirt quilt companies that hire as many as 20 helpers. At Katy T-Shirt Quilts, “we” means my husband and me. We want to be sure every quilt meets our quality specifications and we are much more comfortable with just the two of us. We figure that if we start farming out our work, we would not be able to pro…Read More

  6. Does My T-Shirt Quilt Need to Have a Theme?

    Many of the T-shirt quilts that I make do have a theme such as a sorority or college T-shirt quilt, but just as many don’t have a theme.  A person may have T-shirts from elementary school mixed in with baseball, travel or concert T-shirts. That’s the beauty of each T-shirt quilt. It can reflect one, two or many interests of the individual receiving the quilt. Sometimes a mother may be orderin…Read More

  7. It’s Time to Order T-Shirt Quilts for Christmas Gifts

    Are you one of those people who hates going into stores in September and seeing Christmas decorations already? So am I. However, there is a good reason to start thinking about Christmas gifts now rather than later. With people having such busy lives, it’s hard to squeeze in all the things that have to be done at the last minute. Getting your gift shopping done early can reduce holiday stress and…Read More

  9. Attic Windows T-Shirt Quilt

    Sometimes I get an urge to try something different, so I experiment with my T-Shirts that I have collected when traveling.  We went to Disneyworld and Universal Studios with our kids and grandkids in June, so I was anxious to put my T-Shirts from that trip into a quilt.  I just finished making an Attic Windows T-Shirt Quilt.  Attic Windows is the name of a quilt pattern that gives a bit of a 3-…Read More
