Why are some of the hoodies different prices?
There are many variables that go into the pricing of the hoodies such as:
• Homemade vs. factory made secondhand quilts
• 1 of 1 vs. multiple produced
• Vintage vs. modern
• Overall design
Each hoodie is made from secondhand materials, all of which are carefully chosen and inspected to meet our quality standards.

How should I wash my quilt hoodie?
For vintage quilts, hand washing is the ideal method. I'll list instructions below:
1. Fill your cleaned bathtub with room temperature water until it will cover the quilt. Add about 1/8 cup of liquid detergent to the water and gently agitate. (You can also add 3 T of vinegar to help with stain removal as well.)
2. Add your quilt to the bathtub and gently agitate under the water and soap for about 10-15 minutes. If there are remaining stains you can let the quilt soak for about 30 minutes in the water. If soaking make sure to agitate the quilt about every 10 minutes or so to keep in fully submerged in the water and moving around.
3. Let water out of the tub and fill with clean cold water to rinse. Continue agitating and adding fresh water until all the soap and vinegar are out of the quilt.
4. Gently wring out as much water as you can from the quilt. Be careful not to warp the fabrics or quilt as you do this step.
5. Next you will need to prep your space for drying. Place a number of towels on a kitchen counter or table that will not warp with water. Then place a clean white sheet over the towels. Next, gently place your quilt top on the sheet being careful to resize it to the original shape, but not pulling any corners or edges.
6. Let dry on one side. Then flip the quilt over and let dry completely with a new set of towels and sheet on the opposite side.
7. And you are done!
1. Use a front loading washing machine or go to a laundromat that has front loading washing machines. These types of washers are much gentler on quilts, because they do not have an agitator in the center.
2. Load quilt and 1-2 clean white towels (and color catchers!) into the washing machine with your quilt. The towels will help to keep your quilt soft as it washes and rinses.
3. Add soap to your washer and wash on gentle cycle.
4. Lay flat to dry (as described in the hand washing steps) or dry in the dryer. The dryer method may cause some shrinkage of the fabrics, but many quilters love that “crinkled” look of a freshly dried quilt.
*Do not dry clean vintage or antique quilts. The chemicals used in dry cleaning can sometimes react with antique quilts and cause the fibers of the fabric to disintegrate. If you have a very old quilt the hand washing method and air drying is the preferred method.
