I wonder how this would work in pieces. In other words, not covering 100% of the quilt with it but maybe using strips or something. With pin basting and even with glue basting I don't try to cover the entire thing.

Yes gale, if you scroll down and keep reading, it says you can cut the fusible into small squares and fuse them every 4-6 inches.

I have found glue basting the best for me right now. This product looks promising. I will do a bit more research on this just to insure it is worth the $$.

I'm getting ready to see where it's available online and get a good amount. Soon as I get to it, I'll let you know how it handles.

I was totally unaware of this product and am completely excited about it. Thanks for the share, Peckish.

The best price I saw was Amazon. I believe it was for a 10 yard roll- 20 inches wide. Maybe around $30.00. I want to try it!

thank you both. The page wouldn't load for me so I wasn't able to read the article.

ut my first thoughts would be polyester would flatten because it would melt with the heat needed to get the Misty Fuse to activate, IOW adhere! Whereas, wool/cotton would probably handle the heat without problems. Any flattening effect, would probably bounce back after the fact.

Again, nothing official .... and just my guesses!

I emailed the company and asked if it could be used on poly. I got an immediate reply from them! The lady suggested that I fuse the web to the top and backing first, then use steam to fuse it to the poly batt. She offered to send me a sample 1/2 yard to experiment with. I'll report back when I get it!
