    For the t-shirt quilts I have made, I used lightweight fusible interfacing. It worked well and did the trick.

    ah yes, gotta love the tshirts, just use a light fusible interfacing, THEN cut to size, easier that way, may be more waste with interfacing, but its not really expensive.
    good luck

    I've been using what is called fashion fuse. Real light and works well.

    I just used Pellon EK-130 which is a light stabilizer recommended to me. Seemed to work well. Last one I made, I used a stabilizer that was too thick/heavy. made quilting very difficult. I also used sashing that was too wide. Won't make that mistake again.

    I have 80 shirts cut and fused already. I want 98 before I start. I am making 2 quilts (one for each son) and the blocks are 9" finished.

    Is there a difference between fusable stablizer and Heat n Bond? If so what? I am attempting my first quilt, machine, and some of my appliques will be from T-shirt material. Only in the getting everything I need stage-this includes-knowing how :)

    I have no clue sorry. I am sure someone will know though. I just wanted to comment on the name of your town you live in.

    My dad's name is Kearney. I've never seen the name anywhere before just now. :)
    We also have a Kearney, Missouri, north of Liberty, Missouri

    I made my daughter's using 12 inch blocks. I also used some of the backs of her shirts when they had good info on them.

    I am in the process of making one now for my DSIL who runs Marathons. I used Lighweight Tricot stablizer. The pattern I finally decided to do was ninepatch alternating with snowball blocks. I had originally thought of triple irish chain, but ninepatch and snowball were so much easier, and the blocks are 12.5". I am currently quilting it, so I will post it when finished.
