The marathon quilt: how to sew with polyester athletic shirts in a t-shirt quilt

What I've been doing for the past couple of weeks. . . .

My uncle is an all-around amazing human being who also happens to be an amazing marathon runner.  A couple of months ago, he entrusted me with making a t-shirt quilt from his running shirts.  I was humbled, and really excited to make this for him! 

But... these shirts weren't regular t-shirts.
They're polyester athletic shirts (think DriFit or Under Armor,) and I found this fabric to be a whole 'nother animal compared to regular cotton t-shirts.
