What are t shirt quilts and why do you want one (or more)? Well, a t shirt quilt is made from your very own memories (old t shirts) and basically becomes a quilted special scrapbook. There are at least four very good reasons that you would want to have your very own t shirt quilt: preserving precious memories, having a theme quilt, cleaning out your closet, staying warm.

Preserving Precious Memories:

The t shirt with a saying or message is a part of American life. Just think about some of things you have done to “get the t shirt.” Maybe you were: a part of charity fundraiser, on the winning team for a church softball or basketball or volleyball tournament, a blood donor, … Perhaps the awesome vacation in Jamaica, Hawaii, or Disney World. It could have been a special concert or sporting event. Whatever it was, just like a great song, your shirts bring back memories – hopefully pleasant – every time you wear it. Unfortunately, over time, these fabulous pieces of history “shrink” or fade.

Don’t forget that baby clothes can also be used in a t shirt quilt. How cute would it be to have your grandchild use a quilt made from your child’s baby clothes? Very cute, actually.

Hold your seats, because there is now a way to preserve these precious memories. With a t shirt quilt, you can use your historic treasures to stay warm and continue the legacy of those fabulous t shirts.

A t shirt pillow is also a possibility for a smaller number of t shirts. A small pillow can be made with two and a larger pillow can be made with eight.

Having A Theme Quilt:

With a t shirt quilt, you can have the entire quilt be the same theme. Let’s say you want to use all the same color shirts, or all the different baseball teams your son played on, or all the different basketball teams your daughter played on. Maybe you want an all Caribbean t shirt quilt, or an all ski resort t shirt quilt. The possibilities are as endless as pure imagination.

Cleaning Out Your Closet:

O.K. just admit it – your closets are overflowing. Imagine turning some of that overflow into a memory-filled t shirt quilt. What an extra blessing to have more closet space! This sure beats adding on to the house!

Staying Warm:

Once your t shirt quilt is finished, the best part happens. Now you can use it to stay warm. It is designed to conveniently be used on your bed during the night as well as for naps, in the living room while watching T.V., for soccer games, softball games, football games, lacrosse games, baseball games, keeping the kids warm in the backseat on road trips – short, medium and long. The list is virtually endless …

With so many advantages to a t shirt quilt, everyone should be excited about having one, or two, or more. So get into your closets, start cleaning out your memories, and have them preserved for the whole world to enjoy with you!
