I doubt I could count the number of Florida Gator tee’s C has. They seem to multiply each year and I can never keep track. So when I was contacted by Campus Quilt Company to review one of their T-Shirt Quilts I thought that would be the perfect solution. Up until I told C about it and he quickly replied “There is no need for that, I wear each one of those shirts.” I just rolled my eyes and said “yeah right” under my breath. Feeling defeated I went to the Campus Quilt Company website to see if they offered anything else. Much to my delight I found something that would fit perfectly, a Photo Memory Quilt!
Born in 2000 as a thesis project for owner Leigh Lowe’s MBA, Campus Quilts became a company dedicated to turning old clothes into lasting memories in the form of fun and functional quilts and bedspreads. Campus Quilt Company stands out from its competitors because they take special steps to ensure that your memories are preserved in full. By using a long-arm quilting machine, Campus Quilt Company quilts throughout the entire pattern instead of just quilting around the parameter. They also offer additional options like sashing, embroidery and custom backing to ensure your quilt is customized to the fullest. Campus Quilt Company has been seen on The Rachael Ray Show and NBC’s Today Show and would make a perfect holiday gift.
After I decided on the 16 special photos I wanted on the quilt I simply emailed them to Campus Quilt Company. Along with the photos, I also sent my backing choice, brown flannel. All that was left to do after that was wait on the quilt to be created.
It seemed like no time when the package from Campus Quilt Company arrived. When I opened the box I was overwhelmed with joy when I saw the photo quilt. I looked at each picture and was immediately taken back to that day and the memories we made as a family. The sashing between the photos adds the perfect touch and the quilting pattern makes the stadium quilt look very fun and attractive (not to mention it adds durability).
I was a little nervous when I went to wash the Photo Quilt but I wanted to soften up the photos a bit. I washed the quilt in cold water on the gentle cycle and then dried it on delicate and it came out just fine. In fact, it actually fluffed it up a bit. While this quilt would look wonderful hanging up, I love to be covered in our memories. Princess P loves it when we spread out the quilt and she can crawl around looking at the different photos and pointing at the baby in them. This quilt will remind us of all the fun times we have had in the past. It includes pictures of C and I when we were dating to being pregnant with P and all of her firsts.
Campus Quilt Company offers many options to persevere your clothes like T-Shirt Quilts and T-Shirt Pillows that allow you to clean out the closet without getting rid of those memories. They also have Wee Quilts to display your little one’s baby clothes, bibs, you name it.
