Those T-shirts are piling up

So the question of the day is how many race t-shirts do you have? I know back when I was running in high school I had a ton of different shirts from all my races. Sadly, I didn’t know about this cool gift back in those days or I would have loved to have something to show off all my accomplishments! This gift is great not only for runners but for anyone who has a ton of memorable shirts!


The picture isn’t so good but tilt your head and picture it on a bed. It’s called a Sport-Quilt, and the business evolved from a “gift” that was made for a husband that been admired by many of his running and tri-athlete friends. Not only is it great to look at, but it also frees up drawer space of shirts you don’t want to throw away. Each Sport-Quilt, when finished is a beautiful and colorful memento of your favorite races out of tee-shirts!

On the website, she has charts that show how many tee-shirts are needed for each quilt and the costs for each one. They start at $130 and go up to $360 for a deluxe king.
Click here for Order Form.

Though it may be a little late for Christmas, these do make a great gift, and you can even say you’ll have one made for your runner. Allow 3- 6 Weeks for a completed SPORT-QUILT. Check out the complete website at SportQuilts!

Good luck to everyone racing this weekend. I’ll be dawdling along the desert roads.

    I love a sports quilt! My roommate in college had one, and I spent many hours procrastinating homework by admiring all her races.

    If you look bad on your running day, then I must be a total slob on my best day.

    You look absolutely stunning!!!!!!!

    And your dad.. I can see where you get the good genes from, and it’s kind of cute (but creepy at the same time, is that possible?) for people to mistake you two as a couple because he looks so young.

    The monster tree cleans up nice!

    I still wear my race shirts whenever I can. Dorky & sad statement about my lack of fashion wherewithal, I know.

    "she made for my husband" – Are you keeping secrets from us?

    So I made one of those quilts this summer but I half assed it and never made a quilt before so it is zigzaggy and totally imperfect and I named it the MOFO quilt. I wrote about it in my blog in August ( Um, your dad looks super young, sorry to say but could be your date!

    People think my dad and I are a couple when we are out and about too. SUPER gross! What does this say about us, Danica? I’d like to think of it more as a reflection of our fallen society rather than a statement about how old we look …
