    I know you are looking in FL but here where I live I know someone and they charge $300 to do a T-shirt quilt. Maybe you could search online how to make one as they aren't that bad if you buy the shape-flex to put on the back of the shirts.

    $300 for just the labor sounds like a pretty good price to me, I know I would have to charge at least that much to cover labor. Now if backing, batting, stabilizer, binding, quilting and thread needs to be added in, then that price would of course increase. Since you dont specify what the $300 covers maybe you could inquire to see what that covers. If it covers everything then I think that would be a steal.

    Sounds like a fair price as well. I just made a twin size for a friend and with interfacing, batting, sashing, backing, binding and backing we were well over $100 just for supplies

    $300 sounds reasonable, I am doing a Harley T Shirt quilt for my son and the fusible backing is ove $3 a yard and it is only 20 inches wide, then there is the batting, thread and your time. It is not that hard, but it is not cheap to make any quilt.

    I just made one for a friend who lost her husband-big Harley Davidson man-lots of HD t -shirts. I used eleanor Burns pattern.
    His favorite color was blue,so I used a lot of blue . I think it turned out well-easy pattern, It's on its way to LAQ. Will try to post picture when I get it back.The most time consuming part was cutting the ts apart-backing them with Pellon 911 and then rotary cutting them all the same size-the piecing went quickly. You can do it!
