    One thing I found out about the fusible thread (the not so fun way) is, if it is going to show anywhere it does have a shiny appearance, which I guess is suppose to be clear but you can see it somewhat. Sew you still want to make sure your stitches are not seen.

    You need to repost your quilt pic on this thread so folks can see them together. You did a really nice job on both!!!

    Here is the pic of the quilt top. I'll repost it again just as soon as I get the binding on which will hopefully be tomorrow or Monday.

    You dont stitch with fusible thread, it melts. I lay it on the stiche line then fold the binding over it and iron it on. Then you stitch in the ditch with regular thread on the front of the quilt.

    Hey! What a good looking quilt! Now that looks very familiar. I believe we've used a lot of the same fabrics. I made my table runner for my mother-in-law and she would drool and beg for your quilt if she saw it. It matches her kitchen perfectly. :lol: I'll post a picture of what I made her below. I'm planning on quilting it next week and getting it to her for her birthday.

    Rose, Well I did what the package said and put the fusible thread in the bobbin and stitched. It actually worked great except in a few areas where you could see the shiny glint. But I actually do mine the same way you do except I use steam a seam instead of fusible thread, and do my back binding with it and then do the front binding of my quilt by sewing same as you. Same thing but I wonder which is cheaper? Hmmmm But I did like putting the fusible thread in the bobbin because it actually saves you the step of doing the back binding. Just have to get better at it. :wink:

    I do the exact same thing, only I cut min around 2 1/2", sometimes 2 3/4" depending on thickness of the quilt. I have one long continuous piece and miter my corners.
