What is the difference between a Quilt and a Blanket?

Both quilts and blankets are made with durable high quality fabrics. Whether you choose a blanket or a quilt, you’re sure to enjoy holding your precious memories close. Whether you choose to order a quilt or a blanket, you’ll find both are a high quality product with its own benefits.

Quilt

Quilts offer the most size and customization options. Quilts are larger than blankets and are commercially quilted using 100% polyester batting. Quilts are made with three layers.

Quilts are larger, and have many more customization options such as more colors and the option to add sashing to the quilt at no extra charge. You can use different types of shirts or fabric to make a quilt.

Blanket

Blankets are two layers and hand tied for increased strength and durability. Blankets are made with 100% anti-pill polyester fleece. Both quilts and blankets have a separate outer binding to ensure a high quality construction.

Blankets are smaller, can only be made with t-shirts or sweatshirts, and have fewer size and color options.

Sashing is a 1 1/2-inch frame around every shirt on the front of the T-shirt quilt. Sashing especially enhances a t-shirt quilt when many of the t-shirts are the same color. We have many colors of sashing fabric to choose from or send us your own special fabric. Sashing is included in the price of your Keepsake Theme Quilt.
