    Hi Everyone! I'm new to this so please forgive if I am going over old material. I am looking to make a T-Shirt Quilt, but I am going blank as to how to stabilize the material so that it won't ravel. I was thinking about some kind of iron-on stabilizer. Any suggestions? Thanks.

    I have never made one, but a lot of the posts have said to use a fusible tricot stabalizer.

    Welcome from Arkansas! T-shirt quilts are easy. Iron on a light weight stablizier before cutting, that way you won't have a problem with stretching. Happy to have you join us.

    Hello!! My mom actually helped me make a tshirt quilt out of most of my college shirts .... I did it a little un traditionally than most done and it actually turned into one HUGE applique thing that got put on hold when I found out I was expecting LOL

    If you iron fusible interfacing to the back of your cotton shirts it makes them a little stiffer and they are 100 times easier to sew :-)

    If you need any more help, just PM me :-)

    GOOD LUCK!!!
