Church Camp is number one of 3 T-shirt quilts I completed for a customer recently. Each one was pieced without a stabilizer.
I did find YouTube videos about quilting a T-Shirt top that was not stabilized. While it can be accomplished, I would not recommend this process. From a quilting standpoint, this type of quilt needs a bit of babysitting. Even if the top is square to start, it may be a tad off by the end. The reason is the competing weights and stretch. Between the shirts and sashing, there is a lot going on from a stretch standpoint.
Because this was a church-themed quilt, the owner chose to use a dove E2E pattern.
So far, we have a quilt with no stabilizer and no batting, and now we add in a stretchy fleece backing fabric. Woo hoo! Here is an image of the back after the quilting. I love how the white doves show up on the blue.
