5 Things You Should Demand That Your T-Shirt Quilt Maker Include!


At Shadywood Quilts, we have made over 11,000 t-shirt quilts since 2006. Suffice it to say, that we have a little bit of experience in making a successful T-Shirt Quilt.

T-Shirt Quilt TOPs

While we are busy making T-Shirt Quilts for hundreds of folks every year, we have several people that bring us the T-Shirt Quilt TOP for us to finish. We love taking care of you, but sometimes we cringe when we see the top that the customer wants us to work a miracle on.

Quilts for Ukraine

We had a Call

QGOTV (Quilt Guild Of The Villages) is a very active quilt guild, boasting over 1200 members in The Villages, FL.  However,  the Mulberry Chapter (a smaller group that meets weekly) heard the call for a need for quilts of all sizes and styles to be sent to Ukraine.  

Sponsors like Scott Fortunoff of Free Sprit Fabrics has offered help with shipping costs.

Block Builder Swap Blocks

 What Are Block Builder Blocks?

Way back when, when I lived in the Houston area (2003-2021) , I was was involved in TWO Block Builder groups.  The first group was with the Greater Houston Quilt Guild and the second was the NO PITAs group in West Houston (a smaller group where we did NOT allow any known Pain In The Asses folks in the group).

Quilt Class Etiquette

Tips For Having a Great Quilt Class Experience

I write this as someone who has taught many classes, and have taken many classes over the years.  Yeah, I have been quilting since the late 1970's (yes, I started quilting as an infant), and it is frustrating when others come to the class unprepared, or taking a more advanced class and want help  troubleshooting why they can't get their sewing machine to work.
