Running Can Keep You Warm!

A few months ago I sent off some of my favorite race shirts to a friend of mine who makes amazing quilts. I have been anxiously waiting for its arrival and let me tell you I was not disappointed! She made an American Flag quilt for me a few years ago and I'm always impressed with her work. 

I absolutely love how it turned out and now I can be reminded of some of the best races we have done and keep warm at the same time.


It has a permanent place on the couch now. Next up she will be making us a baby blanket when we find out the gender. :)

  1. Great use of all your racing shirts!. I should really do this with some of my shirts as well - better than having them just take up space in my closet.

  4. I love this! I am saving all my racing shirts to do the same thing. Of course, I only have like 5 so I probably need to run more!

  5. That is so cool! I looked up some local 5ks to "run" with Andy this spring and summer and I'm so excited. I walked 2.17 miles in 37 minutes last night so I'm almost there!

  6. I'm seriously in love with your quilt! It makes me want to get in shape and run some races so I can have one too.

  7. Oh my gosh, this is such a fun idea!! Y'all do so many races that I bet it's impossible to ever wear all the shirts. Such great way to think back on your memories!

  8. That's so fun!! I had a quilt made out of several of my old fraternity shirts, and I love it! I don't currently have it displayed anywhere, though... I really should do that. :)

  9. I love this and it is such a great idea for what to do with all those running t-shirts! I really should have that done with my old pageant festival t-shirts.

  12. I am all about t-shirt quilts! I have several in the works (slash I took the shirts out of my dresser and moved them to my craft room, haha).

  14. I LOVE that idea! I'm in the middle of making one from all of my sorority shirts, but sadly the parts are sitting up in a closet somewhere. I'll need to get that finished one of these days.
