Wrapped In Memories – Project Repat

Recently, I did a massive round of spring cleaning and I realized just how many t shirts I had from various activities and events I’ve been involved in so far in my lifetime. I found shirts from grade school, summer reading programs, dance studios, high school, homecomings and spirit weeks, dance team, sorority events, dance recitals, and college tees. The sheer amount of t-shirts I owned, and rarely wore, was honestly astonishing and I had no clue what I would do with them, until I heard about Project Repat.

Project Repat takes your favorite t-shirts and turns them into a quilt full of memories and backed with recycled Polartec fleece. One of my favorite things about Project Repat is that all of their quilts are assembled in the USA! The turnaround time was incredibly fast (typically 2-3 weeks, with a rush option) which I was really impressed by. I absolutely love my new quilt and it’s super cozy!
  I chose to focus on using shirts from high school for my quilt since those four years were so packed with memories and fun times. Each shirt tells a story and brings me back to a certain day, event, piece of music, poms practice, dance competition, etc. I’m so glad that I now have a functional way to display all these memories and pieces of my personal history.
