    I love fusible batting especially for smaller projects. It is stiff while quilting but once you wash it, it softens up.

    I don't use the ironing board to put it together. I lay it out on the floor, not on a high nap rug, and iron it there. I have never tried to sew through it. I use June Tailor brand. I did buy some fuseable cotton batt from them. It would not bond. Sent them an E about it and they sent me a new one, it was fine. I do queen size quilts.

    I took a quilting class a couple of weeks ago and we were talking about basting the quilt. I have always spray basted mine as I didn't want to take the time to hand baste or pin. The instructor said that she just puts her ironed backing on a table and STEAM BASTES her batting with her iron to it and then does the same to the top. She said just the steam will hold it and you don't need the spray. I haven't tried it yet, but it's worth a try.

    Does she place the iron directly on the batting itself or does she use some type of ironing cloth over the batting?

    I have used fusable batting and like it for smaller projects. I got mine at JoAn's in the batting section. It comes in different sizes and is packaged just like regular batting.

    I think she just puts the iron right on the batting too. I think she uses cotton batting. You might try a little sample of the batting you are using and see if it will work for you.
