I use the tricot fusible, just making sure that the "stretch" in the fusible goes opposite the "stretch" in the t shirt. The tricot makes for a softer product. I than do a large stipple over the entire quilt top when it is pieced together.

    What ever method you use it will be beautiful!!

    Happy New Year!
    I also like the tricot fusible; keeps the fabric soft. Tricot fusible is less expensive if purchased from a drapery company. I got mine from the following online source:

    Wow! Is inflation hitting, or what? The price has doubled since I purchased an almost-lifetime supply 4 years ago.........

    How would the tricot fusible keep the fabric soft if it says it is canvas?

    Have made 17 t-shirt quilts. Only one important thing to remember: back t-shirt fabrics with fusible tricot interfacing! Pellon makes Stacy Easy Knit. I always buy a bolt from JoAnns with my 40% - 50% coupons. Check the web for many ways to put quilts together.
