I am wanting to turn my old t-shirts into a memorable quilt rather then just throwing them away. but i have NO idea what i need to do. (other than buy a sewing machine) someone told me i would need to attach them to something so that it won't stretch or change sizes. any tips you have would be GREATLY appreciated.
