in and out burger quilt

You may have seen fun t-shirt quilts around pinterest. (like THIS ONE) or any of these

but what do you do if your husband only wears ONE kind of t-shirt… in and out burger quilt

yup. we are in and out burger die hards (i married into it.)

when we were dating i kept wondering why my husband would always be wearing the same shirt…

then i saw his closet and he had about 6 in and out shirts in there!!!

we have to stop and get a shirt anytime we are by one. (i have even ordered online for christmas)

my husband even has the christmas ornament

and each member of our family has one in their size.

and do you know about the “special” ordering –like animal style?

moral: we like in and out burger.

so like 6 years ago we decided to save the stained, old in and shirts and make a quilt.

we had a bunch of shirts…one get framed. one got made into pillow…3 were the same.

one was black (and i didn’t want to throw it into the quilt to be an eyesore)

anyways..it took forever to save up enough shirts to make a quilt.

i even had to improvise on the 12th square.


the back is a “manly” plaid (i bought 3 other kinds of fleece that got dismissed by the husband as being too girly…

(i thought the red gingham looked like in and out 50’s style…)


these t-shirt quilts are hard…using knit sucks. it stretches and when you are sewing it to cotton that doesn’t have as much stretch…well..it can be wonky. so mad props if you can sew these and make them look AMAZINg. cause mine don’t


not that i care much. cause i’m no perfectionist. (i’m kind of a  perfectionisssst. said with a jim carrey lisp…what movie?) DSC00147 quilt

i literally just laughed. just so you know– if i was a perfectionist i would have perhaps ironed it.

so it’s a REALLLLy good thing i ‘m not.

and i turned it into a “quillow” quilt pillow… (planket…pillow

 blanket?) (which basically means it can be folded into a pocket)


cause we take this to games…and sometimes you need a blanket to keep you warm. and sometimes you need something to sit on so your bum doesn’t go numb. DSC00151


here’s my favorite part…

sometimes i blog about things..and get them for free…(mad perks of my job)

and so my husband is all…dude. you need to blog about this quilt so in and out will send us free stuff.

so in and out

if you are listening.

karl would like a new t-shirt. xl.

and maybe a voucher for some free shakes.

and if it’s not too much to ask i would love the recipe for your special sauce.

thank you.

  1. I hope he gets his shirt, and everyone gets vouchers for shakes, I’m not sure if they share things like special sauce recipe, so maybe if you promise not to share it they will send it to you as well. Good luck! I like the t-shirt quilt. I have always wondered if it was hard to sew t-shirt quilts because of the stretch, now I know. Thanks.

  2. My parents gave my son one of these t-shirts and it is insanely his favorite tee. Like so much so that I’m planning ahead on how to get a replacement when he outgrows his tee. My brother also has an obsession with these tees. Who knew that it went beyond my wacky family!

  3. I live in Vegas, and we go there quite often. I LOVE their fries. The best part about their tshirts is getting them from the discount bin at the gift shop by their restaurant on the Strip. Seriously love their shirts. All of them 🙂

  4. The secret to making a t-shirt quilt is to iron on a thin interfacing before sewing them together into blocks. That helps keep the knit fabric from stretching and rolling! I enjoy reading your blog very much and appreciated the fun things you share with all of us!

    Coolest quilt I’ve ever seen! We’ve lived in San Diego for only one year and I’ve become a die hard in n out fan too. My husband gets animal style. I prefer double-double protein sauce only!. I totally want in n out now.

  6. We love In-N-Out too….We’re so sad to be living on the East Coast now though. We miss it! I love your quilt and I think the gingham looks great!!!
    We also used to wear the shirts All. The. Time.! We had/have SO many of them and many many years ago I too made a quilt with some of our old shirts. We still have a bunch of shirts saved – Wonder if I could make another quilt?? I even made an apron with one of the shirts!
    Check out Todd Wilbur’s Top Secret Recipes – He has one for a Double Double…We’ve tried it and it’s good!

  7. T shirts aren’t hard to sew if you iron on light weight interfacing first. This keeps them from being stretchy. But I LOVE In n Out too! Cute quilt!
