    You could use a large meandering, geometric squares/rectangles or simple loops. I have done many with pantos, but the last one I did was just simple loops so that I could avoid where all the squares matched up. I also use a spoon foot when quilting t shirt quilts.

    Iknow spoon foots are utilized for pantos and going odd the edge without flipping up the edges. But why on a tshirt quilt?

    I just noticed this video by Angela Walters about t-shirt quilts:

    She starts quilting at 9:15 into the video.

    what is the theme of the t shirts?
    if tennis, baseball, hockey do you could do meandering bats, sticks skates
    if basketball, rugby, foot ball do the ball shapes, or sports shoes
    or highlight the areas of t shirt design

    sometimes wavy lines look good on their own all depends on your preference
    have fun choosing

    Sometimes the points where 4 squares meet gets a bit bulky. I like that it just allows the foot to glide better instead of getting hung up on a bulky spot. My logic, don't know if it really makes a difference.

    I have made several T shirt quilts in the past month, I used a curly stipple on them. My philosophy when picking a quilting pattern is this : decide if the block or the quilting is the most important element of the quilt design. If the quilting is the most important thing ( as on a quilt with a lot of negative space) then quilt it with fancy quilting. If the blocks are the most important design feature ( as they are in a t shirt quilt) then simple meanders are the way to quilt it. In a t shirt quilt, the quilting is just there to hold it together, IMHO!
