Over the years, I have collected just about every Twilight Saga shirt I saw. I also bought shirts as souvenirs on every Forks Trip I went on to the Pacific Northwest. I can't even begin to tell you how many shirts I have but it's more than I could ever wear. I still love them and wear my favorites but I wanted to do something special with those that I don't wear. Just hanging in the closet or folded in the drawer just wouldn't do.
My Twi-BFF Oregon Lynn of Our Twilight Corner found a website called Project Repat that turns your t-shirts into a quilt! HOW AWESOME IS THAT! I was super excited about this because what a great twi-treasure to have. I could have my very own trip t-shirt quilt just like Bella's mom gave her!
Once I decided to do this I started to gather, wash and prep my shirts. Since I have an little OCD (Obsessive Cullen Disorder), I contacted Project Repat to see if I could design my own quilt. They said you can! How cool! All I needed to do was to send a color picture showing the shirts laid out in the order I wanted. So I took pictures of all the shirts, made a layout on my computer and organized them. This process took the longest because I did a double sided quilt and I wanted it to be perfect. The OCD was strong with the front side. I wanted to make sure that each book/movie was represented in order on both the top and bottom halves. The back side I made the trip shirt side so I was a tad less OCD with them.
After the design was done, I organized, cut, and mailed them the 60 shirts. Gasp! I KNOW! And that's not all of them. They cut panels, assembled, and sewed the shirts together. Once they were done they sent me back a Full Size Double Sided (30 panel) very meaningful quilt filled will all kinds of memories and adventures!
