Welcome to the Quilting Board!
Yes that is a real picture of my hometown Temecula, California. We feature premiere Wineries, World Class Golf Courses, Pechanga Indian Casino and Hot Air Balloons
I used steam a seam lite and my long armer had no problem quilting through it - mountains, trees, lake, cabin, etc. She did an excellent job - in fact, it won first in its category at our quilt show.
I don't think that even Solvy has an iron-on fusible that washes away. They have iron-on fusibles, and they have wash-away fusibles, but not one that is both. I think. If I'm wrong, someone *please* post a link!
I've sewn through three layers of Wonder Under by hand, can't imagine a longarm having problems. Washing a fused, unquilted top, however, raises the risk of loosening (and fraying) the edges of the fused pieces.
The Earth without art is just "Eh".
I agree with those who say no washing before...distortion is not pretty.
I use fusibles and never had a problem at the quilters. Hope you find out soon anf let us know how it came out. I imagine it will be fine.
"Keep Smiling, Keep shining..knowing you can always count on me....for sure.
That what friends are for...
I've never had Wonder Under or Heat and Bond Lite go away when they were washed. I find the H & B a little softer than the WU.
Is the wash away Solvy a *stabilizer* by any chance? There is a difference in stabilizer and fusible web. Fusible *web* does not generally wash away
Ok I finally found my package. It's not Solvy, it's (oddly enough) C&T Publishing. 25 sheets, printable, water-soluble, single-sided fusible. The package says $15.95, I can't remember where I got it or how much I actually paid. I have not personally tried it yet, I plan to use it for an applique project that is next in line. However, I have a friend who used it for a hand-embroidered quilt she made and she demonstrated a sample of it for our group - she printed it, sewed it, dissolved it in a pan of water. Her project turned out beautiful and soft.
