It has been many years since I needed fusible interfacing, so I don't know which to purchase.

The love of these dogs for their master is incredible, if you don’t happen to like dogs, you’ll love the music. Trust me!
This was done at the Crufts Dog Show last October.
It is great - watch all the way to the

It's a large queen or a smallish king size quilt (I'm not really sure I just started working on it without any directions) made with ~2800 1" hexagons. I was thinking about just binding it as is, but I am not sure it that would work since the hexagons are so small.
