    Thumbs up Fusible batting

    Used fusible batting for the first time this weekend - didn't like it at all. The "sandwich" didn't want to stay together. Very hard to hand quilt thru. Any time saved by not having to baste is taken up by having to wash the stiff fusing out of the finished project. Any suggestions/comments?

    I use it for machine quilting quilts, placemats, wallhangings etc. Love Hobbs 80/20 fusible. I use regular batt for hand quilting, more pliable.

    Maybe it was the brand I used. Believe it was June Taylor. BOGO free at Joann Fabrics a couple of weeks ago.

    I only use the fusible batting when I make place mats or purses. Sorry you had a problem with it.
