I'm making a simple patchwork quilt (or hoping to) with my daughter's baby clothes. I have them cut out and ready to go, now what?? Lol. They are all different materials, some are t-shirts, dresses, fleece etc. Is there anything I should do before I just start sewing them all together?

My concern would be sewing the stretchy t-shirt material to other material and will it hold it's shape.  I might be tempted to put a medium weight interfacing on the stretchy material before sewing it all together.

I suggest using a medium interfacing on the stretchy materials, like t-shirts. 

Have fun!  Quilting is addicting.  Smiley
