The Campus Quilt Company is owned and lead by Leigh Lowe which began in 2000 based on a thesis project for her MBA. She later turned that project into a thriving company dedicated to turning “old” clothes into lasting memories. Many of us have a pile of t-shirts, jeans or baby clothes that we just can’t seem to throw away which is why Leigh decided to develop a concept that would help others turn those clothes into treasured memories.
There is a quilt that can be custom made to fit any personality; if you have a husband who is a sports fanatic, you can easily create a customized quilt based on his favorite team. If you have a child who plays a sport, all of his/her t-shirts and sports memories can be turned into a quilt and if your daughter is a dancer, what better way to preserve some of her precious dance costumes? The possibilities are endless…
Although t-shirts are typically sewn onto the fabric to make these beautiful T-Shirt quilts, the company didn’t hesitate when I shared my “out of the box” idea. I wanted to preserve some of my daughter’s “first” things as a baby so I opted to create a customized Wee Quilt. I wanted to use items for this quilt that aren’t traditionally used or sewn but the company worked with me and said, “If we can get a needle through it, we can quilt it.”
Here is a photo of my gorgeous Wee Quilt:
There are so many different ways you can personalize these quilts and there are so many options available; you have choices in fabric, colors, sashing, size of each square, etc. The customer service department did a fantastic job customizing this quilt to fit my needs. If you have an idea, Campus Quilt Company will ensure that your vision is turned into a reality. They offer T-Shirt Pillows and they even create photo quilts, based on your own digital photos. How awesome is that? You can find a bunch of ideas from this page here.
From every seam down to each square, this is truly a beautifully made product of high durability and quality, something that will remain in my family for years to come.
