Interfacings & T-Shirt Quilts

What Product Do You Recommend for a T-Shirt Quilt?

This is a question that has come across our desk more than a few times. T-shirt quilts seem to be rising in popularity and with good reason. They are an excellent way to preserve memories, while finding new uses for old and well-loved tees. We fully understand that creating a t-shirt quilt can often be a delicate process. The t-shirts are precious and you want to make sure that it’s done right the first time! We shot the question out to our interfacing expert to grab the best info for you.

Like many other questions, this one does not have only one answer.

    I am making t-shirt quilts and have been using the SF101 since I use regular quilitng fabrics in the top around the t-shirts. Am I using the wrong thing? It seems to work out good so far but now I have become a long arm distributor for Pellon and all I can get is the 911FF. Am I going to get the same good results? Is there a certain direction I need to lay the t-shirt on the interfacing?

      Hi Cindy —

      Thanks so much for your note! Today’s post just gave examples of the most popular interfacings for T-shirt Quilts, but there are many others that you can use. We actually had a comment come through Facebook from quilter who also uses SF101. It really all comes down to personal preference. If you have been using the SF101 Shape-flex® and like the results, then by all means continue to use it! Though the 911FF is one of the more popular products used in T-Shirt quilts, it is all-bias, which means there is a light stretch in all directions. The SF101 is stable in all directions, which may give a different end result. Hope this helps!

      Happy Quilting!
