Hello all~
Soon I will be making my first t-shirt quilt and need help deciding how to stablize it. Undesided Any and all suggestions will be appreciated. You all have such great ideas and I know you'll come up with something better than I would. TIA.

I have yet to make one myself....have the stack of tshirts and a booklet on how to. It recommends a non-woven fusible interfacing that is not too heavy or too light. They recommend Pellon ShirTailor. They warn it is only 22" wide, so figure yardage accordingly. I want to make one for my son...it's "on my list". :2funny: I also googled making a t shirt quilt and got several website listings...try those! Good luck and let us know how it turns out.

I made one for my son years ago. I used Pellon lightweight, iron on, non woven interfacing. (not the featherweight!) It has held up extremely well.
