Happy happy dance

I’ve been anxiously waiting for weeks since I shipped my old race t-shirts off to Arkansas.  Today they came back to me in a different form!

I had a t-shirt quilt made by Campus Quilts!  It’s even bigger than I thought it would be – we could definitely use this on our queen-sized bed and it’s bigger than the comforter we currently use.  I haven’t worn most of these shirts in years so it’s nice to finally put them to use in a better way.

Your quilt is awesome! I love it... and boy, you've got lots of memories there. I had one made for Scott about 2 years ago... entirely out of fire t-shirts! He keeps it on his bed at the station. :o) Enjoy!

I have a zillion tennis shirts from juniors and have always saved them "thinking" i would do this myself. And now i can get someone to do it for me? Score!

wow that is pretty cool. I checked out their site, no way I can budget that at the moment!

Wow, that's pretty cool actually! Especially for folks who may not have a girlfriend who can make the quilts...very nice!
