Default What is your favorite fusible interfacing for tee shirt quilts

Looking for your input on which fusible interfacing you prefer to stabilize the t-shirts in a quilt. Thanks for your help. I have never made one.

I like the fusible tricot. It stays soft. When you apply it, just be sure to put the stretchy direction opposite of the way the tee shirt stretches.

You'll get a lot of different opinions. I use either a tricot or featherweight interfacing. Whatever is on sale. I'm not tied to one particular kind. My suggestion is to get a half-yard of several different kinds, apply them to shirts and see which one strikes your fancy!

I use Misty Fuse or Stable Stuff for all my interfacing.

I've used tricot but found there is more stretch than the Pellon (or whatever comparable brands) featherweight or lightweight.

I bought a whole bolt of Pellon fusible interfacing for sheer to lightweight fabrics 906F at JAF with a coupon. I have made for customers probably about 6 t-shirt quilts. I use this because the T-shirts become so heavy in the quilt. Good Luck !!

NONE! I know that I am in the minority but I don't use it unless the T-shirt is especially flimsy.
