What advice would you give someone starting this project? Cut out the T-shirts larger than the squares you want to use. Bind the T-shirt square with fusible fleece, then cut it down - make sure all the squares are the same if you want it to come out even - otherwise, you will have to figure out how to get them all to fit. I used sashings inbetween the T-shirt squares - it was a sweatshirt material (close to the T-shirt and fusible fleece - so as not to have any dips in the quilt)-for Carrie's quilt - also for the back , but on Rita's quilt I used fleece.

Did you sew with a regular straight stitch, or something more flexible, zigzag etc?

I sewed around them with a straight stitch...although I have done a few more and have actually sewn on the t-shirt. I am still learning - but I was told it would be easier using a walking foot or a Teflon coated foot - which I will be thinking about doing on the next one

I have a bag of baseball t shirts/jerseys from my son's ball years from age 5 thru high school. Have been wanting to do something with them-- think I just found out-- thanks for the inspiration!
