Twilight T-shirt Quilt

Do you have a lot of Twilight T-shirts?  Do you have a few favorites you still wear but have more than you know what to do with? If you're like me then you answered YES to both of those questions. 

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!
