I have no clue what free hand stippling is either. Basically, I'd love to know how much I gotta save up to use you for this project!
You can really use as few or as many peices of clothing as you want. The price is per 8x8 square, but the square don't have to be all with clothing, I can use fabric. I have used crib sheet, receiving blankets, even a window valance once in on heirloom quilt.

I can make the sashing (fabric borders between the clothing) as big or as small (or not there at all) as you would like.

just send the clothing whole to me. I will cut them. If they have been stored for a long period of time, I ask that you wash them before sending them.

Now to save up!!

This, Thank you Kelsey THe stippling can be super close together, kind of medium (like in Kelsey's picture), or widely spaced like in the picture in post one of t-shirt quilt (first 2 pics)
