Wow, I had no idea this thread would turn into this! LOL I'm so glad to hear nephew is doing alright. I'm definitely going to copy your pattern if that's alright with you. I think this will be perfect for what I need to do!

Many prayers are going out your way and I sincerely hope the evil "C" goes away!

I made a tshirt quilt out of shirts of different sizes. I will attempt to attach the picture. I used tshirt strips for the sashing which was a major mistake. Fabric would have been better. Good luck.

Did you use a stabiliser on the back of the t-shirt fabric?

I used a very thin iron on interfacing to stabalise the the fabrics, and THEN cut my strips and squares out of that.

Yes, I used stabilizer on all of it but the strips were still too stretchy.
