My Favorite Quilt

Amy over at Amy's Passions has just posted her 100th entry. As part of her giveaway, she is asking for favorite quilt stories. My favorite quilt (that I made) is a t-shirt quilt called Road to the Marathon. I made it to celebrate my first two marathons. Around the outside are all of the shirts from the shorter races I did in training, and then in the middle are my marathons, Space Coast and Miami. I looked and looked for running themed fabric, but couldn't find any. Instead I chose a bright tie dye with electric blue corner stones. The back is orange flannel and it is SO soft and cuddly. I later found running themed fabric, which is made into blocks, but still not put together in a quilt. So congratulations, Amy, on your 100th post. May it be the first 100 of many more to come.

Oh, soooooooo cool! Ooooooo---I'm glad I put this stipulation in my 100th give-away. I can't wait to read all the postings.

This is SUCH a great idea----however, I can't see cutting up my very treasured shirts yet. I wear them almost daily, specially during the summer. And my 1st marathon shirt is one of those long-sleeved dry-wicking ones (marathon is in October, cold here) and I LOVE wearing it on my cooler training days.

Thank you SO much for sharing!!!

and I hope you end up being lucky, too!
