It would not be my first choice. It wouldn't add much body, and I would worry about it being trapped in the quilt and not rinsing out completely because it would take a lot of washing to dissolve all of it. If it didn't all dissolve, I would be concerned it would get lumpy. I don't know of anyone who used this for a t-shirt quilt. We've always recommended Sulky Tender Touch, which won't change the hand of the soft t-shirts, especially for a bed quilt. For a wall hanging you could use Sulky Soft 'n Sheer Extra which is about 50% heavier than our regular Soft 'n Sheer and would add more body for a wall hanging. Every t-shirt quilt teacher I've known has used Sulky Tender Touch. (Both are iron-on fusible, permanent stabilizers.).
