I have it works.
I meant to say I hope it works instead of I have it works. I see the link did work.

I am making my second t shirt quilt now. I decided to serge the interfacing to the t shirt front. I started working on this a year ago and had to move everything out of my sewing room to re carpet the floor. I needed the extra stability as it was moved around more than I would want. As I place each block on the design wall, I will cut to size & reserge. Now to decide sashing or no sashing....

Pellon Feather weight 911 is what I have used on the 5 T Shirt quilts I have made. Easy to use and no problem quilting the sandwich.

There are also books that specialize on how to best put t shirt quilts together that discuss stabilizers.

I have always used pellon 911 and have used a damp towel to iron it to the t-shirts. I wet the towel, wring it out and then steam the pellon on...( i also get a facial, haha). I have found that it sticks very well and have no trouble. Another plus is that I don't get any glue/gunk on my iron.

Don't know where you got that figure. I'm seeing $11.75. French Fuse is $8 a yard, and this generic version is selling for under two dollars a yard. I don't mind paying $11.75 for the shipping. It comes on a roll.

Very sorry for your loss, BARES.
