Default No-spray, no-pin method of basting

For those who are tired of pinning and can't tolerate spray, here's a neat method of basting that I thought a brilliant idea.

Wow! I'm so glad I saw this, Peggi. Thank you!
I've been glue basting but even with that I sometimes get creases on the back. I'm definitely going to get some of this!

This looks so much better than pinning. When you have the Mistyfuse fused to the fabric, then press it to the batting, does it flatten the batting? Does it depend on what batting you are using? Polyester will flatten but not wool or cotton? Inquiring minds want to know!

Sorry, janiebakes, I don't know the answers to your questions. I haven't tried this technique, I just posted it here so everyone else could benefit.

I've been using Misty Fuse since it first was available. No one really knew what it was back then so I scored a 50 yard bolt of it at clearance price. I'm still using off the bolt. I haven't seen it sold on the bolt since. Now it comes in yard rolls.

I watched a few videos and am wondering if you can use it for quilt layers. I mean you probably can but wouldn't you need a ton of it? I looked for bolts but couldn't find any.
It sure looks like a good method though.

One of these days I'm going to finish my Cal. King size quilt for our bed. Now I know y'all have heard me talking about this for several years now & that I've decided to not put batting in it & will use it more as a bed spread instead of a quilt. I wonder if I could use the Misty Fuse on the top & bottom layers to keep them fused together while I sew the two pieces together. Has anyone ever done that with Misty Fuse?

Here it is directly from the Mistyfuse site. You can purchase it by the bolts from them. It is expensive.

Thank you Peckish, I don't think I would have found this product on my own. I went to the websites listed and did a little poking around. She uses wool batting and "irons lightly" using the highest heat. There is some loss of the battings loft. If I were using this product, I would hold the iron barely touching the fabric and let the heat do the fusing. That is the theory anyway. If someone has tried ironing Mistyfuse onto batting please let us know.
