    Has anyone ever used Pellon Fusible Fleece as their batting for a wall hanging?

    I'm thinking about applying fusible fleece to the backing to prevent puckers and wrinkles as I machine quilt, but thought I had better ask the experienced quilters, before I tried it.

    i use it exclusively in all the handbags that i make but i've never used it in a quilt.

    my problem with using it in a quilt is if the quilt is bigger than the fleece width you have to piece it together and i don't like to piece my batting together.

    I have never tried using this product.
    But, I am glad you asked the question.
    I will be anxious to learn, too!!

    I've used it in placemats and table runners as batting...but I did not fuse it...just used it like normal batting...
    Hope this helps.

    its just a fusible batting that adheres really well to fabric.

    i like to use it in handbags because it provides a lot of structure and the bags always hold the shape.

    Thanks , that is why I love this board I learn something everyday ! :lol: But you say better for smaller projects so you don't have to piece together. Cost wise is it similiar to warm n natural batting ? Works the same ? I stick to amller quilts usually :wink:

    its cheaper than warm and natural/white. i buy it by the bolt when joann has a coupon.

    i pay like $45 for the bolt with the 50% coupon.

    a bolt is 20 yards by 45 inches.

    its 100% polyester so if you like natural fibers in your quilt this product is not for you.

    i don't think joining batting is a bad thing per say - its just that people buy my quilts and i just don't feel right about doing that.
