Night Owl T-Shirt Quilts was born on a Saturday, while my daughter who has now graduated college was cleaning her room. She took a box from her closet and opened it up and said "look mom"! "I saved all my T-shirts from elementary school through high school and I want you to make me a quilt to take to college." You see, Morgan, my oldest has attended the same school from age 3 to 18. As you can imagine her loyalty and love for her school was close to her heart. She knew that the T-shirts she so loved to wear in high school would be a thing of the past once she hit her college years. She told me that a quilt with all her old T-Shirts from school was a great way for her to keep the memories from school close to her. She was sure it would give her a sense of comfort when she was far from home and all that she has known for the last 15 years.
I think it was no coincidence that near the same time, the economy was on a downturn and my occupation was directly affected. I was looking for a way to bring in extra income doing what I enjoy and something I had a talent for. So the idea of starting a T-Shirt quilt company seemed to fit the need. Now if you were to ask any of my friends to describe me they might say she is a busy lady and she never sleeps. I still have the pillow case that my parents gave to me when I was a child. It has a great image of Sally from The Peanuts and it reads "I hate to go to bed at night and I hate to get up in the morning" Today that is still very true about me. Thus, Night Owl T-Shirt Quilts has come to life. Thank you for visiting our site and for letting us preserve your memories forever!
