QUILT BINDING SERVICES
Dislike binding your quilts? Quilting Cousins Canada is pleased to offer you our binding service for your pre-made quilt. Bindings are sewn by machine to the front of the quilt with a 1/4 inch seam allowance with mitered corners. The binding is then turned to the back and sewn in place by hand giving your quilt a smooth, polished binding to frame your creation.
Fabric binding to be provided by you and must be at least 2 1/2 inches wide and long enough to go completely around the 4 sides of your quilt PLUS 24 extra inches to allow for mitering of corners and joining.
Cost: $40.00 flat fee on all sizes
Do you have a collection of T-shirts buried in the back of your closet or dresser drawer? Let Quilting Cousins Canada create a one-of-a-kind T-shirt quilt for you. We will use your favourite and treasured T-shirts to construct the quilt top.
Each T-shirt block will be lined with a pre-shrunk, 100% cotton interwoven interfacing to prevent stretching and shifting. Interfacing, batting and all thread will be provided by Quilting Cousins Canada and a binding fee is included in the cost of the quilt, as shown below. Your personalized T-shirt quilt will be quilted using a high quality thread in a "meandering" pattern to compliment and enhance each T-shirt block. You will have a unique and personalized quilt to cherish for years to come.
We ask you to provide:
§ 12 to 20 shirts depending on size of your quilt. They do not have to be new but they should be clean, have no holes and the logo should not be cracked or falling off the fabric. Any shirts not used in the quilt top will be returned to you with your finished quilt. Please note that the specific number of T-shirts required will be determined according to size of print and/or picture on the T-shirts and whether print is on front only or front and back.
§ Backing fabric of your colour and pattern choice in flannel or cotton. Yardage requirement will be determined at the time you place your order.
§ Batting will be included in the cost shown below as well as a binding fee.
Possible T-Shirts: Sports teams, Vacation destinations, Special Events, Rock Concerts, Beer Logos, Corporate or employment T-shirts or your favourite animal Tees.

An excellent way to "re-cycle" your worn out jeans, Denim quilts can be smooth seamed or made in the rag style. They are pieced together using 6 1/2 inch squares of used denim clothing (jeans, shirts, jackets, skirts) or newly purchased denim fabric. A smooth-seamed quilt will have a finished 6" square while a rag quilt will have a 4 1/2 inch finished square with a 1 inch rag on each seam on one side of the quilt. The reverse side will have smooth seams.
Smooth seamed denim quilts are excellent as couch throws or for outdoor use as beach blankets, picnic blankets, camping, emergency-kit blanket for the car and even as pet blankets to protect your car seats. The backing for denim quilts can be cotton, preferred for outdoor use or flannel for indoor use. If using cotton for the backing a low-loft fiberfill batting is recommended to reduce the overall weight of the quilt. If using a flannel for the backing no batting is required. Machine quilting will be done in a meandering pattern and all thread will be provided by Quilting Cousins Canada and included in the cost of the quilt.
Here is what we ask you to provide:
- Clean, used denim clothing or pre-washed denim fabric purchased for the quilt top size you desire. If you are providing used clothing, please see cost list below.
- Batting if required, 2 inches wider and longer than the finished size of quilt. To be confirmed at the time of your order.
- Backing fabric of your choice and binding fabric in sufficient yardage for the quilt size of your choice. To be confirmed at the time of your order.
- An additional binding fee of $40.00 will be applied to the cost of your denim quilt if a binding is ordered and will be confirmed at the time of your order.
