T-Shirt Quilts



I think T-Shirt Quilts are such a great idea! My mom has been saving a lot of my sister and I's t-shirts to make these for us. I've seen a few of my friends' in person and they are such cool keepsakes. I'm looking forward to taking my collegiate collection and making a fun one as a memory of my USC experience. Lord knows I have too many t-shirts as it is anyway! 

I really like the t-shirt blankets that have a "theme". For some people it is high school, for some people it is sports, for others it is Greek life, like the one above for Tri Delta! It is cool to see all the different variations of all the shirts but having a common thread of an organization or experience.

Do you have a t-shirt quilt? Does yours have a theme? What does yours look like?

My fiance and I have been collecting t-shirts from all of the places we travel (from fraternity formals, family vacations, random road trips, and other fun things) so that we can make one to remember all of the exciting things we did together!

I love these and can't wait to actually have one! Great post!

I was just telling my girlfriend that this is my next project! I have so many T-shirts that I don't wear anymore, but can't quite part with them, so what better way to keep them by turning it into a quilt! :)
Love the post! Will have to share when I actually finish mine! :)

I was going to do one with my Sorority shirts but I ended up giving so many away to new sisters when I left and I have misplaced some in all my travels. Super cute idea!

My boyfriend had one made for me when I graduated from Virginia Tech! I love it!

These are so cute! My fiance' has played baseball for forever and has more Tshirts than anyone I know. Once we get married I told him I will be turning them all into this! Whether he likes it or not. Because they are such a pain to store. The quilt is much more useful!

I really want to do a concert t shirt quilt and maybe a college one too. Such a fun idea!

Ah I'm doing this! Last time I went home I sorted through all of my old tees and started cutting! It's going to be a long process but I'm so excited for the final product :)

my mother made one for me while I was at college from t-shirts I collected throughout my life. love it- but almost freaked out when I saw my favorite texas a&m shirt was no longer in shirt form.
