    A friend has asked me to help her plan a T-shirt quilt using her son's old sports jerseys. I know there must be more than one way to do this, but I don't know any of them. What is the best way to keep the T-shirts from stretching and warping all over the place? Is there a good pattern to use? Advice please! Thanks in advance to all you experts out there...

    You have to use fusible interfacing to keep the T's from stretching. I use Pellon brand. You can get it at JoAnn's or on line. Once you apply the interface the T's will behave themselves much more.
