    Well, I used it once on the quilt I'm doing. It didn't work.
    I followed the directions and ironed it to the fabric. Was nice for about 14 minutes.

    Now I've quilted the quilt and it bunched, and came apart. I won't buy it again.

    BTW when it came apart I spray basted it together, and the spray baste wouldn't stick. My first time for that to happen. Used 505.

    I have had a few bad experiences with the June Taylor line. I hesitate to buy anything with that name.......Just me....

    I don't know about June Tailor's brand, but I bought the Mountain Mist fusible batting, also from Joann's, and used it for a project recently and it worked very well. The only thing that I didn't like about it, is that I had to quilt it no more than 2'' apart, I don't normally quilt that close. For that project, it was a wall hanging, so it didn't matter the heavy quilting.

    I wouldn't recommend the June Taylor fusible batting. Too many problems with it to mention. Hobbs makes a good one and the Mountain Mist is also acceptable. I've used these as they were given to me as gifts. I, personally, use Warm & Natural batting with 505 temporary spray adhesive. I pin baste, as well, if I can't get to the quilting within 2 weeks. Hope this helps.

    I haven't used this brand, but I have tried Pellon brand and don't really like it. It doesn't stay fused and I especially don't like that the fabric looks lumpy after fusing. I think all the moisture from the steam during fusing causes the fabric to ripple and pucker. I use it if I want a think polyester batting, but I don't fuse it, I just baste as usual.

    Really not a fan of the fusible batting. It just did not hold. I thought when I purchased I was onto something ..... Well it was quite dissapointing. Spray baste .. now thats something to be happy about.... life changing!

    Amen to spray basting. However, the spray also makes a difference. I only use 505 spray. I've tried June Taylor, Sulky, several others and I stick with the 505. It cost more, but I don't get gummed up needles when quilting. That would be a good thing.

    I would use it for small projects and LOTS of steam in the iron. I did use up the roll I bought but would not buy it again.
