sports memory quilt
Does anyone have any ideas of how to use saved football, basketball, track uniforms for a memory quilt for someone who has lost a son? Im assuming these are jerseys and shorts.

I use them just like I would T-shirts. I don't normally use interfacing when making T-shirt quilts but for sports jerseys I might put a light weight fusible on them - since many of them are mesh (with little holes). If they are not mesh, then just treat like you would for a t-shirt quilt.

Due to the heaviness of the material, I highly recommend using LAQ ing it or having someone LAQ it. I also recommend stabilizing the fabric.
