    I had a friend ask me about this product and I know nothing about it.

    I read about it online, and found there are two companies that have the exact same thing out right now, of course one is a bit more than the other, but function/size wise they are the same.

    has anyone used this yet?
    does it work?
    Is it worth $3-$4 for 10yds?

    I can not imagine wrestling with 2 pieces of batting trying to iron them together, seems sewing them would be quicker and easier...but told her I would ask.

    it seems a bit pricey to me...
    I just zigzag mine...by butting the 2 pieces together.

    I think it's silly ... I butt my pieces together and zigzag.

    I've used it and liked it a lot. Since some of my older machines only straight stitch this has been a help.

    see, I think since the lady who is asking is on a fixed income she just needs to sew them together on her machine...she uses a mid arm to quilt, so it gets well blended.

    I just cant see the cost myself.

    I agree, also failed to mention mine was given to me by a LQS owner so I could try it out.

    I just bought some last week at the LQS, and will not go back to sewing batting together. It takes just seconds to iron on, and is so much more reliable. I highly recommend it. And I could not feel where the seam was after getting the quilt together.

    pellon fusible for light to medweight fabrics works great, it only takes a few seconds to cut into strips. tried the one on a roll, its fine but pricey. use a jo ans coupon and try the pellon its fairly cheap.
