What To Do With Race Shirts? Make A Quilt!

I recently decided to clean out my closets and realized how many race shirts I had collected over the years. Outside of giving them away I had heard of others having their shirts made into a quilt. I thought this was an excellent idea and decided to have one made. I have a lot of memories wrapped up in my shirts. They represent a great deal of work and emotions from all my races spanning back to high school and collegiate track and field events all the way through my cycling and triathlon events of today. I really could't part with those shirts. So having a quilt made the most sense from an emotional standpoint but also from a recycling standpoint. Why waste all that material? These quilts don't come cheap but in my opinion they are well worth it. Here is a picture of my quilt which is in the process of being constructed.
