Too Cool T-shirt Quilts – Charlotte
Too Cool T-shirt Quilts was created by Andrea Funk in 1992 when her sister Karen arrived with a trash bag full of T-shirts.
Karen, a triathlete, had too many T-shirts. Every time she raced, she picked up another T-shirt. She told Andrea that she had heard about other people making quilts out of their T-shirts and asked Andrea to make one.
At that time Andrea was making traditional quilts and had no idea how to make a T-shirt quilt. Through experimentation and analysis of the designs on Karen's T-shirts, Andrea created a soft, durable T-shirt quilt with different size block, which led to the unique design of Too Cool T-shirt quilts.
Why Too Cool? Too Cool T-shirt Quilts received its name through the many "that's too cool" comments Andrea received from customers throughout the years. Andrea also believes T-shirt quilts are meant to be fun, dynamic and cool, not the average quilt; hence Too Cool T-shirt Quilts' name and unique style.
