When I entered college (16 years ago) and pledged a sorority, I had no idea at the time what I would do with all the t-shirts I saved over the 4 years I was there. I knew that I wanted to keep my jersey in case I had a daughter (who pledged the same sorority) to pass it on too. But I did not know what I would do with the t-shirts from swaps, sisterhood retreats, formals, and such. I kept my favorite ones and the ones in the best condition. I am glad I did...even if I graduated 12 years ago...because J's grandmother made my old t-shirts into a quilt. Not only did she make one for me, she also made a quilt for J using his old t-shirts from his fraternity.
Here are a few pictures I took of the quilts. We just love them!! They turned out perfect.
This is the quilt she made from some of my old t-shirts:

So, do you have a neat or special way you have saved mementos from college or high school?
