When I was still working at Piece by Piece fabrics, in walked a tall women wearing an Oregon Association of Rowers jacket. I didn’t recognize her, but of course had to find out who she was. And sure enough, she used to row with the OAR team! And she is a quilter! Just two of my favorite things! She said she was working on a rowing t-shirt quilt. Then one day she called me and asked me to quilt it for her…I was thrilled! Not only was it fun to see all the shirts and regattas she had been to over the years, I knew how much it meant to her. She rowed in college (which makes her a “real” rower!). So I quilted it up for her in my usual swirly-wirly-wavy way!
So if you have a bunch of t-shirts you’ve been thinking about putting together in a quilt….JUST DO IT! (Did I steal that from Nike?) Anyway, really…do it now. Then you will have this wonderful quilt that itself is full of memories to enjoy for years to come.
