T shirts to use in the quilt
If you wish to use stabilizer Pellon SF101, minimum 3yds
(It’s the cotton backed one, I don’t use it unless shirts are really thin but some people feel more comfortable using it
Cotton fabrics for sashing. Approx 3yds. 2 ½” pre-cut strips and Jelly rolls work really well.
For sashing I use assorted fabrics for a scrappy, unique look and is a great way to use scraps. You can use a single or limited color scheme as desired. . 2 ½” pre-cut strips work great.
To make a queen size quilt using 20 blocks surrounded by fabrics, you will need approx 3 yds of fabric for the sashing.
