Do you have a large collection of t-shirts that you don't wear much - but they feel too sentimental to discard? You could have them made into a t-shirt quilt.
I've written about this before - see point #2 in this older post - but since then I've found many more companies making the quilts. The photos in this post just show one style of quilt from each provider - but many of them do multiple styles, so if you're serious about having a quilt made, you may want to check out the web sites to see the full range of options.
The one at the top of this post comes from Custom Memory Quilts. The quilt blocks can be made from sweatshirts or sweatpants, too - not just t-shirts. [via KChristieH blog]
This one comes from Race Quilt; the web site notes that the company is now accepting orders for Christmas. These quilts have a 6-8 weeks lead time, so if you'd like one for the holidays, order soon!
Here's just part of a quilt done by Katy T-Shirt Quilts. I wanted to show you the detail, which doesn't show up in a larger picture.
As a University of Michigan graduate, I hesitated a bit about posting this Ohio State themed t-shirt quilt - but it sure is cool. It comes from REgnA's Bloom.
This quilt was made by T-Shirt Quilts Canada "for a runner with a huge stash of t-shirts, every one of which just had to have a place in this king-size quilt."
Other companies to consider are Brightside, Campus Quilt Company, Goose Track Quilts, PSHQuilts, Q is for Quilting, RossCommon Quilts and Texas T-Shirt Quilts. Update on Aug. 1, 2012: Q is for Quilting seems to have disappeared.
