    I iron butcher paper squares on the back of the t shirt, then I sew the pieces to fabric sashes without removing the paper, I remove the paper before basting and quilting, I find the this way the quilt is softer and more pliable.

    I haven't made one, however, my girlfriend has made several -the "trick" is to use fusible interfacing on the T-shirts, then square up to size you want as this stabilizes the knit in the T-shirts. She then uses sashing to complete the quilt.

    The things I have read suggest French Fuse, which is really light weight with some small amount of stretch. I have not done an entire quilt yet, but have made a few tote bags and it worked great. My LQS machine quilts T-shirt quilts and they are great. I have seen ones that are all regular, same size blocks and ones that are more random. I love both. You can get the French Fuse with a coupon at JoAnns or Hancock....
