    I am going to start a Tshirt quilt this weekend. I would like feedback on sashing. Do you use other Tshirts, or is cotton or other fabric acceptable? Any other tips would be greatly appreciated. THANKS!

    Since you have to stabelize the t-shirt fabric I would use a cotton fabric for sashing.. lots of give in t-shirt material so I definately wouldn't recommend it for sashing.

    I used cotton to sash with. And an iron on stabilizer on the tee shirts to keep them from stretching.

    I stabilize all t-shirts to help rid so much stretchiness...and use cotton sashings.

    I have used contton for the sashing on 3 T-shirt quilts. However, I saw one done with the T-shirts remnants as the sashing and it was wonderful. I will try that next time. The sashing was stabilized as well as the block.
