Theme Ideas for T-Shirt Quilts

If you want to make a skating t-shirt quilt, and you have shelves and shelves of t-shirts in your closet, you will need to decide which of your shirts will be incorported into your t-shirt quilt. You might want to turn your favorite t-shirts into a quilt, or maybe the shirts you wear least often, but you might also want to select a group of t-shirts with a common theme. Here are some theme ideas for a skating t-shirt memory quilt.

Skating Championships T-Shirt Quilt
Gather up all of your t-shirts from the aggressive, artistic, speed, or hockey work championships, or from your regional or national championships and turn them into a t-shirt memory quilt.

Solid Gold Skater T-Shirt Quilt
Collect all of the t-shirts for which you have won gold, silver, or bronze medals and turn them into a skating career memory quilt.

Inline Marathons T-Shirt Quilt
For this quilt you can use t-shirts from one season's world inline cup marathons, or only marathons in your own country, or only marathons you have skated yourself, or marathons in your favorite locations, or marathons you would most like to skate, etc etc etc.

Skating Clubs Friendship Quilt
Contact your favorite skating clubs in your country or around the world, purchase their t-shirts (usually it is possible) and turn them into a skating club friendship quilt that will make you feel happy every time you use it and remember your friends in all of those clubs.

Single Event Skating T-Shirt Quilt
This quilt is a special way to commemorate a 10th or 15th or 20th anniversary of your favorite event, because you can use (for example) 10 years of Summer X Games t-shirts or 20 years of Athens to Atlanta t-shirts for your quilt. A quilt like this would also make a wonderful event annivesary gift for the organizer of an event.

Single Country Skating T-Shirt Quilt
For this t-shirt quilt you can use shirts from events in only one country, or you can make a quilt from a variety of different kinds of t-shirts related to skating in only one country, for example t-shirts from skate shops, skate manufacturers, clubs, and pro skaters from the country of your choice.

International World of Skating Quilt
I would love to make a quilt out of skating t-shirts from countries I have visited. They could be shirts from skating clubs, federations, events, shops or anything else, as long as they reminded me of the places I have traveled with my skates. I would fall asleep every night hugging that quilt and thinking about my wonderful skating friends and adventures all over the world!

Skate Manufacturers T-Shirt Quilt
Bauer, Bont, Canariam, Fila, Harmony, Heelys, Hyper, K2, Maple, Mariani, Miller, Mogema, Powerslide, Raps, Razors, Rexton, Riedell, Roces, Rollerblade, Roxa, Salomon, Simmons, Skechers, Tecnica, UltraWheels, Verducci... the list goes on and on. Skate maker t-shirts are available on every skate manufacturer's web site.

Pro Skater T-Shirt Quilt
This quilt can be made using the t-shirts of favorite NFL, speed skating, aggressive skating, roller derby, or other pro teams or skaters.

Skating Workshop or Camp T-Shirt Quilts
For this quilt you can use t-shirts from all of the speed skating workshops you have attended or your favorite aggressive skating or roller hockey clinics or summer camps.

Off-Beat Skating T-Shirts Quilt
I like the idea of making a quilt out of the most unusual skating t-shirts you can find, perhaps with sayings like "skate or die" or "it's only roller skating but I like it" or maybe from the Los Angeles area "Skate Like Hell" event or from the Cheesehead Invitational in Wisconsin. Or how about an entire quilt made out of t-shirts from the different all-girl roller derby leagues. Now that would be fun!

Skating Venue T-Shirt Quilts
For this quilt you can use t-shirts from olympic ice speed skating ovals, or aggressive skate parks, or vintage roller skating rinks, or famous skating areas like Venice Beach in California, or Miami in Florida, or Central Park in New York City, or Paris, or Amsterdam, or Berlin, or Frankfurt (I don't want to leave anybody out but this list could go on forever!)
