    it's also fantastic for a Quilt-as-You-Go project.

    then i went to the fabric store (look for one that sells fabrics for garment sewing, too) and bought yards and yards of the lightest weight fusible interfacing i could find. i was lucky enough to find one that is exactly like the tape. less than $3 per yard. if you cut it into 1.5" strips, you'll get more than 13 yards of "tape" from one yard of the interfacing. obviously, the more narrow the strips the more money you save. a 1" strip is plenty wide, really, which would yield 20 yards of tape. if the stuff you find is wider than the stuff i found, you'd get even more.
    Genius! I never would have thought of that. Thanks!

    I quilt my own quilts on my longarm and I didn't have any trouble quilting over the fusible. In fact, I didn't even notice where it was.

    Also, I didn't think about it when I posted earlier, but I just used a damp piece of t-shirt material over the poly batting when I fused it and had no problem.
