top together. I will be making another quilt soon and don't plan to use fusible in this one either. I did make slightly wider seams (about
1/2 inch) and most of the tee shirts were fairly new.

I don't know if this is the same process, but I know that there is a book titled "Too Cool T-shirt Quilts" that has a process that doesn't use stabilizer. I just haven't bought it yet.

Yes, I didn't know the code numbers but I use Pellon Fusible Featherweight, too.

It can be purchased at Joann's, where it is currently on sale at 50% off! Supposedly, this particular one is forgiving, if the directions are not followed perfectly. Others seem to get temperamental if you don't bond it just right.

I use a lightweight fusible on the back of shirts. I don't want to add a lot of bulk, just stabilize them until I get the top made.

Joann's sells a prepackage of 10 yds for not much $ and if you have a coupon or they are on sale, that is better. I just saw them the last time I was there. At my small store, the interfacing is on the end of the cutting table and these were in a box (on the floor, of course) near there.

Hope this helps!

Can anyone tell me what interfacing to use on the back of the tee shirt for a tee shirt quilt? I saw one at a local quilt show one time and I can't remember what the woman who made it told me. I do remember she said it was important?????
