    Ok, this is something new to me. What is generally used as stabilizer for knit pieces?

    The quilt is great! So many beautiful T-shirts.

    Love your t-shirt quilt. All my t-shirts look like rags compared to yours.

    Very pretty. I think this is the "girly" T-shirt quilt I have ever seen and I really like it, thanks for sharing.

    I have made two t shirt quilts and learned the hard way.... First one, I used the fusible stabilizer, Cost a lot and lots of work and made the quilt really heavy. Second one, I starched the daylights out of the shirts, then cut them.... Worked much better. I machine quilted just horizontal and vertical lines, about 4 inches apart. I did find that it was way easier when I had to adjust the fabric if I was off. Here is a pic
