Hi, I'm brand new to quilting! My aunt had just begun to teach me when she passed away from pancreatic cancer. I would like to use the logo from my nephew's school shirt in a quilt for his new son, but I don't want it to be a "t-shirt" quilt. Is it possible to use one block from a tshirt in a regular quilt, and how do you keep it from stretching? Thank you for your help.

You can.  Just use non woven fusible interfacing= light weight to stop the stretch on the t-shirt.
