Thanks to our fantastic personal bargain shopper and neighbor, we have recently created 2 one-of-a-kind t-shirt quilts from reclaimed t-shirts that are available for sale! These “up-cycled” t-shirts created two terrific and unique quilts. Please read on for descriptions. There is more to each quilt than just what is pictured here. (We’d be happy to let you see them up close before you decide to purchase.)
This first one would be a perfect gift for a graduate, specifically someone heading off to or graduating from Virginia Tech. Or maybe a birthday present for a young man hoping to someday be a Hokie? It measures 55″ x 80″ and will sell for $140.
We also have an adorable smaller sized quilt that would be perfect for a young lady, perhaps in Elementary or going off to Middle School.
This one measures 50″x57″ and is listed at $90.
Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’re interested in either of these.
Sara, thanks for helping me finish up Tara’s quilt. You are ”sew” much more than just my running friend; you are truly the “best business partner ever”! I had so much fun piecing together her USNA and Navy t-shirts. Despite the fact that she was class 0f ’03 and didn’t have a “real plebe year,” she was able to collect several great shirts. Actually, it was like a stroll down memory lane or Stribling Walk.
Working together to tackle this quilt was a brilliant plan so we could have the quilt completed before she returns home this weekend. She is going to love it. I will drop it off at her house as a welcome home surpise!
Are you interested in hill work tomorrow? We could run up and down Rudee Inlet Bridge several times. It might be a good idea if we’re going to do some of the shorter races coming up. Have a fantastic Wednesday and I’ll see you tomorrow at 5:30 for our run.
I ran today for the first time since the 1/2 marathon last Sunday, and it was great to be out again. However, I had to run later than usual (it was actually daylight) and the temps today are record highs. It was in the high 60s by the time I was done, heat my body was not prepared to encounter. Needless to say, I was sweatier than I’ve been since October. Am I the only one who loves to run but hates to sweat?
If you tend to sweat, you may have some misgivings about getting a quilt made with shirts you’ve, well, spent some time in over the years. My sister-in-law had some concerns about that when thinking about having one made for her husband. Apparently he has worked out in some favorite shirts for years, and they’re showing it. Well that is no obstacle when making a quilt – we just cut that part out. In fact, we can use any part of the t-shirt or not, so stains can be worked around. It’s those well-loved and used shirts that make the best quilts, so we can take care of them…no sweat!
