Doing A T-Shirt Memory Quilt!

28 Jun

I’ve gotten a new project to work on! A dear friend of mine asked me to make a memory shirt out of her late husband’s shirts. I cannot wait to dive in, but I have a question for all of my fellow sewists: How should I stabilize the shirts so that when I cut them I get proper squares, and they stay that way? So far I have 2 ideas about what to do: use iron on embroidery stabilizer, or use iron on batting and use quilt as I go method. Anyone know what else I can do? I really want to make it awesome!

    I use Pellon 906F fusible sheerweight and it works wonderful.

      Why main question is, can I sew fast with that interfacing, or will it break my thread if I sew too fast?
