A t-shirt quilt can provide a strong sense of comfort - wrapping yourself in your t-shirt memories is a great way to feel like you're right at home.
I brought my t-shirt quilt with me to Thailand while I serve here as a Peace Corps Volunteer. It's come in very handy, as the weather was weirdly cold when I first arrived. I also used it as a conversation starter before I knew a lot of the language. I've definitely recommended it to fellow Peace Corps Volunteers! -Ashley
