Carnegie Mellon T-Shirt Quilt September 18 2014
I LOOOOVE my t-shirt quilt. I have already been asked by several people who made it, and I have referred them to you!
Anyway, here is the story of our quilt:
My husband attended Carnegie Mellon University for his undergraduate degree, where he played on the basketball and golf teams. As you can imagine, he acquired a lot of t-shirts in four years. When he decided a few years ago to clean out his dresser, most of these shirts were on the list to be discarded. I knew we couldn't let that happen, so I kept them in a box for a few years knowing what I would eventually do with them. This year for his 31st birthday, I had a blanket made by Project Repat. He loved it, and so do I! The blanket is such a great reminder of his CMU days, not to mention it’s soft, cozy and warm! Thank you, Project Repat!
A t-shirt quilt for warmth during healing September 15 2014
Hospitals are always so cold, why would outpatient Radiology Oncology rooms be any different? My Project Repat blanket is my constant companion, each day during treatment. I've been diagnosed with Acinic Cell Carcinoma (salivary gland cancer) and my t-shirt quilt brings me laughs, comfort and warmth during this time. Each square has a story. I'll be dragging this blanket around with me for years to come.
Virginia Tech T-Shirt Quilt memories September 11 2014
As an Army brat, I lived in 2 countries & 7 states. Although I was born in Virginia, my roots are everywhere. It was fate that I ended up at Virginia Tech, home of the Hokies. I am the happiest HOKIE that ever walked that campus- EVER! As a Virginia Tech tour guide, SK Sister, officer for the Big Event and faithful Hokie football fan, I accumulated MANY t-shirts. As I chose t-shirts for the t shirt quilt, each one reminded me of something fun, meaningful & happy. I am a proud Army Brat, but my roots run deep in Blacksburg!
I LOVE MY QUILT! Jamie Lien

A Family T-Shirt Quilt full of memories August 29 2014
My Project Repat Tshirt Quilt features a collection of tees that belonged to my husband and I, many of which we have had since we met 16 years ago. Many of our favorite musicians are included, such as the Grateful Dead and Pink Floyd. When we were designing the quilt, we thought it would awesome to make our Bob Marley shirts form a cross in the center. I will treasure this quilt always, as it includes a Bonnaroo shirt that was a gift from my dear friend Margarita, who has since passed away. My son thinks is the coolest thing ever and sleeps with it ever night. It makes me happy thinking that shirts that have such special memories to me and my husband now provide comfort to our son.

Michigan State T SHIRT QUILT August 18 2014
I've always been a collector of T-shirts. Even at a young age, I tried to get a T-shirt whenever visiting somewhere new or to mark a special occasion. In college, I knew I had to continue this tradition. As a die-hard sports fan when I started at Michigan State, I collected all of the T-shirts from moments that stood out to me. Shirts from football and basketball student sections and student ticket campouts, to trips to the Final Four and victories over hated rivals. Every shirt represented a special time in my life. I continued this tradition after I graduated and started graduate school at Central Michigan. When I was finally satisfied with my collection of shirts, I sent them in to Project Repat to be made into my “College Years” t shirt quilt. What better way to preserve those memories? It turned out great and I couldn’t be happier. Now all I have to do is design another one!
Running together: T-Shirt Quilt together August 14 2014
My wife and I have participated in triathlons, together, since 2010. We’ve improved our performances and lengthened distances to include Super Sprint, Sprint, Olympic, and Ironman 70.3 events, as well as other endurance runs, bicycle rides, and swims. Our ultimate goal is to complete a full Ironman 140.6. We have been training for this goal for a year and will achieve it in Chattanooga, TN, September 2014. We wanted a blanket that showcased our journey and accomplishments leading up to our next milestone. Project Repat was the perfect solution! We love the t shirt blanket! Thanks!

Yay for preserving t-shirt memories! July 29 2014
Yay for preserving memories! I am such a visual person, a sucker for pretty things, and all about remembering the fun, defining moments in my life. This blanket combined all of these things that I’ve been meaning to do for years now. No more storing t-shirts in tubs all over the house that I didn’t necessarily wear every day (after all, they were from high school), but t-shirts I didn’t want to part with. Whether I want to reflect on my many years in drumline, the summer camps I attended, the organizations I was a part of, or my awesome trips across the United States during high school, Project Repat t shirt quilt was the perfect way to do it!
A memory t shirt quilt of love and college memories July 22 2014
My husband and I met on the first day on my freshman year at La Salle University in Philaldelphia, PA. He was a sophomore tennis player from Virginia and I was Kansas girl looking to explore the new city. After 4 years of countless basketball games, service trips, fundraisers/races, vacations, and city outings we had more t-shirts and memories than we knew what to do with. Thankfully, we found Project Repat.
We’ve been together for 5 years, married for 3 weeks, and now have an incredible- t shirt quilt wrapped with memories from every step—state, game, and trip—along the way!

University of Georgia Sorority T Shirt Quilt July 10 2014
"My fabulous t shirt quilt is a collection of my beloved sorority’s t-shirts. The sorority’s colors are red & white but I included some black tees with a little BLING on them as well to make the blanket pop! The t-shirts themselves are of the last 5 years of activities. This includes our annual Greek step show, line anniversaries, 5K walks and our centennial celebrations. The light polar fleece is just the right weight and still feels warm enough for the fall and winter. I have wanted one for two years and I’m so pleased with Project Repat's price and quality!- April West
Commemorative T-Shirt Blanket July 07 2014
"On our little island in Orange County, CA, in 1993, to celebrate the opening of our new fire station, we had a small fun community parade. It was so successful that we have had a parade every first Sunday in June ever since. I started purchasing a commerative t-shirt with the parade "theme" on it that first year. Twenty years later and thanks to Project Repat, I now have this beautiful t shirt quilt! I love it! It will be on display at our Balboa Island Historical Museum."- Mitzi
