Thank you so much Dorothy, I sure will take advantage of the opinions and experience of the ladies on this site as I'm such a babe in the woods on this journey, but so excited to begin..  I'm actually cleaning and organizing my small sewing room to begin ASAP.  My husband recently destroyed the door casing into my room to fit my cutting table!!  But it was very worth it..  May you and everyone have an amazing joyful day and weekend!!  <3

Hello Vicki...  hope you enjoy your quilting journey.  The ladies on this site are friendly and helpful if you have questions.  There are several people here who have made t-shirt quilts.  I was born in Indiana and moved to the west coast in 1978.  It certainly is home to me.

Thank you so much for the welcome Vickie, I'm so excited to begin this journey.  I've made my own clothes and my husband's shirts since forever, but have always wanted to follow in my grandmother's foot steps and quilt.  I have had several of my husbands t-shirts from running races to make into a quilt for about 10 years. LOL  he doesn't believe I'll ever gt it finished, however I WILL  !!  I was born in Oregon and moved to Washington State shortly after, so I consider myself a washingtonian  lol  Can't wait to get started ASAP

that is what i do also vickie. i use the lightest wt woven interfacing tho..i also use it on lt wt silks, silkie knits, tissue lame...it helps give body and stability to so many really fun to use fabrics.

I use the lightest weight fusible interfacing that doesn't stretch to stabilize the t-shirt.  Fuse it to the shirt and then cut the shirt to the size I need.

I'm going to do one...any pointers before I begin? Have never done one before.
