Awhile back I was playing around on Pinterest and I found a tutorial for a T-shirt quilt. I was immediately enamored with the idea; I have so many t-shirts that all bring back amazing memories of a time or place… but they’re taking up space in drawers and many of them haven’t been worn in forever. So this t-shirt quilt idea was appealing, minus the fact that I cannot sew. At all. Hrm.
Fast forward to last night. For some reason I was thinking about that t-shirt quilt. I posted on face*book that if anyone knew how to sew and would be interested in helping me create this, I’d love to hear from them. I was somewhat surprised when one of the girls I’ve met through barrel racing said that her Mom sews and would be able to help out. Then a good friend sent me a message and said that if that didn’t work out she would be able to do it!
I’m really somewhat foolishly excited about this. I went through my drawers last night and cleaned out 40 t-shirts that I haven’t worn in years but are special to me. I have a couple more long sleeved cotton shirts that fall into the same category. I would love to have a big quilt made of all of these, and now I have two people who are willing to help me!
Hopefully I’ll have a really fun quilt that reminds me of some amazing times in my life soon enough.
