DID YOU KNOW?

T-shirt quilts are one of the most popular types of "memory quilts" out there. After all, few things are more sentimental than your old soccer jersey, the concert tee you got from your favorite live show, or the shirt you picked up from that unforgettably fun night in that unforgettably fun place. Learning how to make a t shirt quilt is one of the easier quilting skills to pick up, because unlike traditional quilts, there doesn't have to be elaborate cutting or fancy footwork involved. Additionally, t-shirt quilts are often used as a source of therapeutic comfort. Many patients who are facing an extended stay in a hospital or are transitioning into a nursing home use the comfort and familiarity of t-shirt quilts to ease the transition.
