T-shirt Quilt: Plea Answered

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.

    I’m really excited Mom. 🙂 The space it’s going to save in my drawers coupled with the fact that I’ll have such an awesome keepsake is really awesome.

    I am hoping to do something like this with the various shirts that I have. I can see it being broken up into possibly 2 or more quilts though – college shirts, shirts from working at caz, race shirts, etc…I have boxed up a number of shirts that are for that reason alone!!! can’t wait to see pics of when it is done!!!
