    Fusible batting??????

    I've never used this stuff before but I picked up a package at the thrift store. So have you used it? What are you're thoughts? Good, bad? Is it tricky to use or hard to quilt? Thanks for all your help!

    I used it on some placemats I made with the grandkids for Christmas presents, worked pretty good. Not sure how it would work on a whole quilt though.

    Love it!! It's expensive by the yard. I like using it for smaller projects. Parts of stuffed animals, wall hangings. It quilts wonderfully.

    Thanks, I have a crib quilt I'm working on that I was thinking of using it for.

    I've only used the fusible on small projects, like the Wonder Wallet. It worked great ! I would never try it on a quilt, since I love quilt basting spray.

    Great question. I have used it on purses, totes, wall hangings, etc. but never in a quilt. Seems to get to stiff for a bed quilt. I am sure there are lots of quilters who have used it for more than I have. I will be watching for their answers too. Thanks for posting.

    I like it for small projects, place mats, runners, ect. Not for a quilt tho, gets way to flat and stiff for my liking.

    I use Hobbs Fusible batting for all my quilts and I love it. It makes putting the quilt sandwich together a pleasure: I can do a lap quilt in an hour! It is easy, drapes nicely and is excellent for machine quilting. It can be re-fused easily and is nice and soft when the quilt is washed. In my last quilt I used two layers for more warmth and am very pleased with the result.

    Are you thinking of fusible fleece? Fleece would be stiff for a bed quilt but fusible batting is different.

    Me too with the Hobbs. Have just finished my second double sized quilt. I can even do it on the kitchen table. Give it a go.
