It is interesting to see peoples different approaches to a big project like this. I tend to be a bit impulsive and will dive right in, rather than doing too much planning. I usually have some kind of an idea of what I am trying to get to, but definitely use the suck it and see approach. I am slightl envious of you more organised folk.

CLM the tailors tape is a good idea, but really the sweaters do stretch, but it is possible to keep them restrained. I like the final, stretchiness of the whole quilt, which is given by the fact that everything can stretch, it makes it nice and drapey, I wonder if the tailors tape would inhibit that too much?

I love personal swaps,  I print a lot of random fabric, usually with no purpose in mind.  let me know if you want any of it.

I also tend to dive in, which is why some of my knitting projects are a bit "patchy"...I tend to see what I have on hand and hope there is enough! lol

The appeal of a the stretchiness is what draws me to a project like this as well, but I am getting good tips for all sorts of idea, like a t-shirt quilt for the babies that are now approaching first grade or beyond lol...
