    I transferred the pattern onto it by putting the film over the paper pattern and tracing it with a permanent marker called a sharpie. then I centered it on the block and pressed it into place. Then I sewed it with my new machine. ( I was feeling lucky) It sewed well. Didn't gum up at all. Then I began the process of removing the film. It came off well. All of the little places took some time but overall I liked the process and will defiantly use it again. Good luck Panda. Please give it a shot and see how you like it. Post your results.

    Love your quilt. I have used Press N Seal in the same manner and have not had any problems either.

    COOL!!

    I'm still not wanting to use the Press N Seal, but then again....if you think about it, we all pretty much use Wonder Under/Stitch Witchery/Heat N Bond and it's all got glue in it, right?

    Yes Terri they all do. Sure Loretta. I sent Panda some Press-n-seal and we were talking about how to use it. So I tried.

    Press 'n Seal instead of Sulky? Is it much cheaper? I suppose one of the benefits is that it won't dissolve if you sweat.
