It’s Day 3 of Runnylegsmas & today’s giveaway is sponsored by Project Repat!
One of you will win a twin size Tee Shirt Quilt made of your race shirts or any shirts that you want to include!
I worked with Project Repat a few years ago and it is one of my most read posts!
I absolutely love my quilts and I was so excited that they agreed to jump on board for Runnylegsmas!!
The process for creating your quilt is pretty much the same as it was in 2016 when I got my original quilt. You can read my old post here.
How does it work?
Head over to the Project Repat website, first thing you’ll do is select the size of your quilt. There are 5 sizes, Lap, Twin, Full, Large Throw & Queen. These range from 16 – 42 shirts. 4×4 – 6×7. Prices range from $75 – $189.99 and they always have discount codes/sales available.
After you select what your size you want you’ll pick the color of fleece that you want on the back. I picked light blue on both of ours, but there are other colors like Navy Blue, Orchid, Gray, Red, Black & Green.
I picked a Large Throw and then got to finding 36 shirts.
I got an email after purchase and there were instructions for preparing and shipping the shirts.
Step 1: Make sure you have the correct number of shirts for the size quilt you ordered
Step 2: Measure the sides to make sure you have enough fabric.
This step is key because it will determine the panel size
12×12 panels require fabric in the size of 13×13
14×14 panels require fabric in the size of 15×15
Step 3: Separate front & back of each shirt which is not as easy as it sounds. I advise that you not do this when you are distracted.
Step 4: Ship with packing slip to Project Repat
Since I was ordering relatively close to the holidays, they gave me a date in my order email that I needed to have my shipment postmarked by so I would get the quilt in time.
I also got an email giving me a bunch of options to upgrade my quilt.
Some of those options are:
Get Bigger Panels (you can change from the 12×12 size to a 14×14 size if you have larger shirts)
Design your own layout
Custom Embroidered Message
Add a Photo
I cut up all my shirts and double-checked that I had 36 panels. I had ordered the 12×12 size and I was pretty sure all my sides were at least 13×13.
I went to the site to look into shipping but the shipping cost was pretty pricey for me so I made the decision to purchase a large flat rate box from the post office with tracking and shipped to them that way. If you don’t ship through them, they recommend that you have tracking and I would say you might want to get insurance too, for the price of the quilt, just in case the box is lost.
Once they received my shirts, I got an email telling me that they were received and that they would contact me if they had any questions or when it was shipping.
About 2 weeks later I received an email with a Response Required: Apparently the majority of my shirts were larger than the 12×12 panel and they were recommending to upgrade to the 14×14 size panels and because of that they would need to back a few panels that were smaller. This plus tax was $53.88.
I thought about it and decided to go ahead and do it because I wanted to make sure that my quilt looked nice. And when I got the quilt, I was very glad that I did the upgrade because some of the logos on the shirts would have been cut off with the smaller size.
About 2 weeks after that I got an email saying that my quilt was shipping! Yay!
My process with a rush delivery time was as follows:
Order in Sept 24
Shipment made 10/4
Shipment received 10/11
Upgrade request received & responded to 10/26
Quilt shipped 11/12
Quilt received via USPS 11/19/2021
So what’s the finished product look like?
Here you go!!
