    I just went to Joann's to get some fusible interfacing and it was 50% off - no coupon needed!

    The sale is thru the 4th of July.

    There were lots of other great deals to, but I got so tickled to finally get my interfacing on sale, that I bought the entire bolt and left doing the happy dance.

    I'm working on my t-shirt quilt...so always need interfacing for that....I was down to scrap pieces, so I was very excited to see it on sale when I walked in the doors.

    Is this what you use to applique on quilts?

    I'm not sure on that...I've never done applique....other's might be able to answer that better.

    I use mine on the back of the t-shirts so they hold their shape once I cut them.

    You use Steam a Seam for applique.

    I use interfacing for appliqué. You can use Paper backed, or the sew in type. I've never tried Steam A Seam,will have to check out that technique.

    I use light fusible web for machine applique. It comes with paper back. You trace your pattern on the paper side, trim roughly around it, press the web side onto the back of your fabric, then trim on the pattern lines. Peel off the paper, place it on your background block, then press again. If the piece is large, you can cut out the center of fusible pattern piece before you press it onto the fabric. That way it doesn't get so stiff. I'm sure there must be a tutorial on here on how to do this. It works great!!

    There is a method of using regular fusible interfacing (not fusible web) for applique . You stitch the fusable interfacing fusible side to the right side of the fabric applique. You trim the outside down to between and 1/4 and 1/8 inch . You then make a small slit in the back of the interfacing to turn it. Finger press the edges. Press the applique to the fabric. This method turns the raw edges to the inside . The fusible interfacing is hold it in place till you machine stitch in place.
    It can closely resemble needle turn if you use invisable thread and a blind hem stitch. Some use blanket stitch .. the idea is no raw edges ..everythng is turned under very efficently with the interfacing. Light weight interfacing works best.
