I have finally decided to put my 50 or so youth group t-shirts from high school to use by making a t-shirt quilt. So far I have been using interfacing on the cotten t-shirts, however would it be advisable to put interfacing on sweatshirt and sweatpants squares also? As a poor college kid, I would definitely love to save some money on interfacing, as I feel that sweatshits won't stretch as much as t-shirts, but I also do not want to screw this up. Thanks so much for any help!

I REALLY want some funny hoop-framed embroidery! Wanna do a personal swap?

Well, I'd test - pick up a thrift store sweatshirt or cut a bit off the sleeve, and interface a maybe 2" square, and leave a 2"square uninterfaced - see how you like either one, and how it feels when compared with the rest of your shirts. I'd probably not bother interfacing them myself.

I use a non woven, fusible, lightweight fusible interfacing on all of my t-shirt quilts.  Including any sweatshirt panels. If you use the lightweight version it will have a great drape.  It isn't stiff or anything!  Good Luck!
