T-shirt Applique onto Cotton Fabric

by Lisa
(Vernon, CT USA)

I am making my 2nd quilt ever.


It is a baby quilt for a friend who’s mother died right before she got pregnant. I

have a T-shirt that I would like to incorporate into it as appliqués onto some blocks.

How do I do this?

I’ve heard working with T-shirt material is difficult. I have some fusible backing to use, but after that, I’m not sure how to proceed...ie stitching type.

Do I just sew the edge of the fabric, etc. ?

Any help is appreciated!
