    I used fusible batting for small items and recently on two play mats for my grandsons. I lightly fused the layers together then loaded it on my longarm. I wanted the finished products to be somewhat firm, and they are, but I had to continually clean the gum off of the needle with an alcohol pad. I have no plans to use fusible batting again.

    I have tried one brand (can't remeber what it was) but I prefer spray basting. The layer stay together better for me.

    I have used it on crafty things like tote bags or purses but not a large quilt. I have quilt and don't want the "stiffness" that a fusable adds wheni am stitching.

    I have just now tried it for a baby quilt. Seems very stiff. Will it soften after laundering? Don't think I would want to wrap a baby in or under it as it is. Package is June Taylor low low Polyester Quilter's fusible batting. If you think it won't soften, I will take it out and use the regular stuff and just baste the sandwich together.
    An old saying that nothing is perfect in God's World justifies any mistake I make in my quilts, some on purpose and some by accident..

    Batting is expensive enough so i have never tried fusible. I love Elmer's and will always use that method. No smell, no overspray.
