Standard Grid T-Shirt Quilts have a grid layout, sashing fabric between the blocks and two borders. Generally, the sashing fabric is the same as the outer border fabric with the smaller inner border being a complimentary and contrasting color.
Standard Grids have every shirt sized to the same size. The biggest logo dictates the size of everything. 15” is the normal size for the blocks with 16” generally as the maximum size. This is a great way to get a larger quilt with a smaller amount of items.
Standard Grid Quilts are priced by the number of pieces, not the size of the blocks. Major modifications, extra patches, adding backs, etc. are $5 each.
