Have any of you done this before?
I'm watching Sewing with Nancy, and she is showing how to use a fusible .. for instance, heat n bond lite, transweb or any similar that has paper on one side and fusible on the other. She puts just a bit, maybe an inch worth of fusible, and fuses it down about a fist apart, on both the top of the batt and on the fabric on the bottom (probably not explaining this right, but I think you know what I mean) then she removes the paper, presses all over with a hot iron and voila ... it is fuse basted! She is showing it on a small project but I can see how this would work great on lap quilts etc.
Wow what a great idea.
I've never pin basted a quilt. I was taught to use spray baste and that is how I've always done it. I can't wait to try it with fusible interfacing. I have lots of it cuz I buy it when it is 50% off at Joanns, usually around holidays, and use it all the time when creating fabric postcards. I think it would be tremendously less expensive than a can of spray baste.
So if you have done it, please explain your experience. If you haven't b4, do you think you will give it a try?
