    I have never used that brand before but what is the method for fusing? I use Hobbs 80/20 fusible and it is water solvable so no steam on it or you run the risk of losing the fusible. Sometimes it has wrinkles in it and I carefully separate the folds and smooth it out. When I dry iron my sandwich together, if any bumps remain, I gently pull them ahead as I iron the sandwich flat. I iron both sides of the sandwich and make sure it is wrinkle free before quilting. With the Hobbs you can peel it back and refuse if needed. Does your fusible allow that?

    what about a quick iron onto a teflon pressing cloth....so if any of the 'fusible' glue melts it will be onto the teflon and
    will peel off....just make very sure glue side is down on the teflon, as you do NOT want to get that glue on your iron
    Yes that is a real picture of my hometown Temecula, California. We feature premiere Wineries, World Class Golf Courses, Pechanga Indian Casino and Hot Air Balloons

    Thanks to all of your suggestions, I finally came up with a solution. I laid it out and turned my hair dryer on high and directed it on the wrinkles and smoothed out the wrinkles with my other hand and it worked! I still won't buy this brand again. I'm going to try the spray adhesive next time. According to the instructions, this is supposed to be fused with a dry iron if doing both sides and steam if only doing one side. Don't get that (doing one side? why would someone only do one side?).
