All of my college experiences in a quilt!

A special kind of ThrowBack today! 
I wanted to share a quilt that I had made by CampusQuilt when I graduated Rider University. 
This was a very special project that I was so excited to design and have my t-shirts from years of memories made into a quilt that I will have forever!

I started my quilt with two shirts that I had from my hometown, my senior shirt from high school & one of my work shirts from the Oak Tree Lodge that was a huge part of my life for 10+ years as my first job & neighborhood hang out.

I was especially happy with the extreme attention to detail that CampusQuilt 
took with my insanely detailed instructions. 
They took pieces of some of the front of the shirts and placed them perfectly on the quilt. 

When I got my quilt made, I realized that I had forgotten a row of shirts and sent it back & they added them on no problem, 
the bottom row was the added piece, 
and even has two of my jerseys from my sorority Alpha Xi Delta

I love that this quilt gave me the chance to showcase some of my leadership roles 
that I accomplished in college,
This was a shirt that I created when I was Public Relations of Greek Life on campus!
I am so proud of my accomplishments in college, and I truly miss my days at Rider University.
I learned so much, met my best friends, and my husband!
Now I own a house & work in the same town! 
Man, time has flown by!
Is this quilt something you are interested in? 
How do you keep your memories accessible?
