This is the t-shirt quilt I made in Fall 2020 out of t-shirts collected from my kayaking adventures over the past several years. It was such a joy to make, and it is now my FAVORITE quilt. But more than just loving it, I discovered an unexpected and truly life-changing benefit of this quilt: it helps me sleep better.
Like many of you, during the COVID crisis I have had a great deal of difficulty falling asleep. I would get into bed and then the worries would begin to fly through my brain. Sometimes I tried turning on a video and it would help, but if I did fall asleep it wasn't really deep, restful sleep.
But with this quilt, I find that when it is time to go to bed, I look at the quilt and start remembering happy times. As I snuggle down under it I stroke the various shirts and recall beautiful places, wonderful friends and happy adventures. Worries don't come to mind, and I fall into deep peaceful sleep.
The effect is real, and it works.
