Q: What size T-shirt squares are used for custom stitch’T quilts?
A: T-shirts are cut into 14”x14” squares or 12”x12” squares (not both). Square size is typically dependent upon T-shirt logo size. We encourage you to specify which size you would prefer for your order, but we will make the final decision upon receipt of your shipment. The crib quilt is limited to 8”x8” squares due to their small size. King-sized quilts use 14”x14” squares.
