    Everyone talks abt using the spray...so What's wrong with the easy fusible batting? Seems it might work better with just ironing versus having to cover everything or take outside to spray...Need pros and cons

    The cotton fusible worked fine the two times I used it on throw size quilts.

    The poly was a nightmare. Of course, that could have been the fault of the operator. :roll:

    YMMV.

    I've used the fusible batting on wall hangings and lap quilts and didn't have any problems. Anything bigger, I prefer to thread or pin baste.

    I've used it for smaller quilts with no problem.
    I think it would be awkward to fuse onto a large quilt but that's just me thinking of the space i have to work in.

    I love fusible batting. I use it on my QAYG blocks, quilted jackets, wall hangings and table runners. It is awesome for stitch and flip, because the strips don't move.

    I don't use it for bigger quilts because I send out my quilts to be longarm quilted. But for smaller projects it is wonderful.

    I've used both of those methods and I like them both. Most of the time for larger projects I have to pin baste using the tables at the library because I have no working floor space. For smaller projects I use the spray, only because I don't have any fusable handy to use. I went to look for some at Walmart where I live and that was a joke.

    I didn't have the best of luck with the fusible batting, but it could have been just me.
    I used it on a doll quilt and it kept coming loose. But I also starch my backing and that could have been why.

    It would be awkard to get it ironed onto larger backings, so I am not sure if I would try it on larger items :D:D:D
