My name is Tammy Petersen and I am from a small-town in rural Iowa.
I have had a knack for sewing since I was a young girl and over the years the skill has turned into a passion and a beloved hobby. I started quilting about 10 years ago, and since then have grown to love it. Through creating multiple wall-hangings, blankets, and of course t-shirt quilts I have really begun to master the skill.
The T-Shirt Quilt
As my daughter, now 20, was growing up it seemed at though she got a new t-shirt every other week. Whether it was for a new sport season, a dance recital, a school event, or a church outing. Each of these t-shirts was a representation of an important life event, but over the years, even the most important t-shirt would become too small, too worn, forgotten, and somewhere in the back of the closet.
By taking her favorites t-shirts and turning them into a quilt, I was not only making her a nice warm blanket, but I also was preserving some of her most precious childhood and young adult memories. I then began to do this for others and I loved seeing the joy in their eyes when they saw all those important memories stitched together in a quilt they could use daily, hang on the wall, or pass on to loved ones.
Now, I would love to help you, your child, or loved one stitch memories together to keep forever. By having a t-shirt quilt, you can ensure that all of those once precious t-shirts will not go to waste, but instead will be crafted into a beautiful, custom made memento.
