    Smile Hi from Scotland

    Hi my name is Maxine and this is my first time on this forum, I class myself as a self taught patchworker and I use the term quilter loosely because I am not very good at it and try to avoid it if at all possible. I have made several quilts and my newest project will be a t shirt quilt for my son, I would appreciate any tips from all you experienced ladies.

    Hello and welcome from New York.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    Welcome from Ontario, Canada. Most quilters use a light weight inner facing ironed to the back of t- shirts to reduce the stretch and make them easier to sew together. There are some great t- shirt quilts here on QB.
