Creating a T-Shirt Quilt

Creating a T-Shirt Quilt

Project RepatIn high school I collected shirts throughout my four years to hold on to memories. From Choir to Student Council, and different leadership events I went to. I wanted so badly to make them into a quilt that I could cherish for ever, but I never got around to it. So the shirts just sat there is a box collecting dust and taking up space in my closet. Three years later and I’m in college.  The box of shirts is still sitting there and as much as I want to get them made into a quilt, other things have come up.
 
As I make my way into my final year of college, I wanted to have a piece of this adventure to keep with me always. I have several shirts from various sorority and Greek life events from the past three years and most of them hold meaning. There is my very first shirt from Tri Delta, the day I received my bid, and then there is the shirt from my very first recruitment, oh and the one from our Delta House Of Pancakes (DHOP). I wanted to learn how to make my very own t-shirt quilt, but with being so busy and getting ready for the next school year, I had to find something quick with very little preparation on my end. 
 
That is when Project Repat came into my life. Project Repat gives a new meaning to all of your favorite t-shirts and makes them into a t-shirt quilt. You can choose from various sizes (lap/twin, queen, king) and depending on the size depends on how many shirts you have to send in. 
 
I was so excited to hear about this company because I have been looking for one for quite sometime. I really enjoy support local businesses and although Project Repat is located in Massachusetts, I love that everything is Made in the USA. The preparation and process is so simple and in a few weeks you could have a quilt at your doorstep.  
 
All I had to do was go on to their website and select the quilt size I preferred.  After checking out, you are sent a package  to send your shirts back in for them to make you a quilt. So I sent some shirts in and then I received a confirmation email that they received my shirts and ta-da! It is complete! 
 IMG_0018 IMG_0021 IMG_0026 IMG_0027IMG_0032This quilt is the perfect addition to my home and I will always remember these events in my life, because who really wears those t-shirts for years and years? This quilt will always remind me of the memories I made and the friends I will cherish for years to come. Thanks to Project Repat, I cannot wait to send in those high school shirts that have been sitting in a box for a few years and continue this great idea for my kids and family members. It is such a great gift idea for any occasion, especially graduation. Plus, when you send in your shirts use code “mymemories” for 15% off! 
 
Have you made a t-shirt quilt before?

    My good friend Cassie has about a billion t-shirts. I am going to have to send a link to this post so she can actually do something with all of them. Thanks for sharing.

    This is so great to know. My daughter has hundreds of dance t-shirts that I would love to turn into a quilt. Pinning for later!

    I love the t-shirt blanket. If I had t-shirts still I would definitely do this.

    I totally love this idea!! You can also use the remaining part of the t-shirts for car rags. I can’t wait to make this!

    I love this idea! I have a bunch of shirts from races I have run and it would be so fun to make them into a quilt like this.

    I love T Shirt quilts! My mom had a friend make me one with my high school shirts but she put a weird backing in it that made it super stiff. I have enough now to make another one so thank you for the resource!

    Please understand the difference between a quilt and a blanket. Project Repat makes blankets – two layer, no quilting. It’s not the same as a quilt that has 3 layers that are held together with quilting. A blanket is very cheap to make, which is great if that’s what you want. But if you want a quilt, you will have to pay more because a quilt is much more complex and time consuming to make, requires more expensive equipment and a higher experience level. Expect a blanket from Project Repat, not a quilt.
