College Dorm Essentials: The T-Shirt Quilt
Have graduating seniors this year? Are they getting ready to leave off for college, leaving behind some of their high school (or even earlier) t-shirts? They don't want to get rid of them, and you probably don't either - too many wonderful memories! MemoryStitch has a solution for you!
One college dorm essential is a t-shirt quilt the kids can take with them when they leave home. Turn their favorite t-shirts into a t-shirt quilt they can take to their dorm.
Choosing the t-shirts
All t-shirts carry memories, so make sure to hang onto all the best t-shirts from their favorite activities, clubs, vacations, and so on. While they go off to college and start making memories, they'll be able to keep these t-shirts to remind them of where they came from.
T-Shirts, Jerseys, and more!
Even though you're making a t-shirt quilt, that doesn't mean you're limited to just t-shirts! Don't leave out the jerseys, the uniforms, or other fun items your kids have that aren't t-shirts.
Button down, shirts with zippers, scrubs, and many other items can also be used! For a full list of our recommended materials, click here.
Choosing Quilt Options
There are so many different t-shirt quilt options to choose from. There are different sizes, panel sizes, backing options, and even batting and long-arm stitching!
For the college dorm essential t-shirt quilt, we recommend our twin size t-shirt quilt with 14" panels (see graphic below).

Bonus Tip: Add Embroidery
Embroidery is available on all t-shirt quilts backed with minky backing! Adding a special message to the back of the quilt further personalizes an already special keepsake! Consider using embroidery to congratulate your kids on their accomplishments, or expressing your love or how proud you are.
