    Has anyone used the Wash-away Applique Sheets by C&T Publishing Co. ? Or the Soft-Fuse paper backed fusible web? I would like some input on these 2 products from you.

    I haven't used these, but if you are looking for a soft fusible I have heard that Misty Fuse is excellent. I think it is not paper-backed, so you have to fuse on an applique fusing sheet (or other Teflon type sheet).

    I've used Stable Magic for applique, and I love it.

    Do you use it for hand or machine applique? From the discriptions, it seems that Stable Magic and Wash-Away sheets are very similar, except the WA is fusible but it must wash it too. I'm kinda confused about the WA..

    I use it for hand applique, I've never done machine applique that I've liked how it looked when done. The stable magic is easier to use than freezer paper. No burning of the fingers, no ripping out the paper. I can get perfect points with the stable magic that I couldn't get with freezer paper. I just soak the piece in a sink of water when I'm done and the paper softens right up.

    I finished this today, and used the stable magic.

    I have used the Wash Away sheets by C & T Publishing. I really liked them. They are a bit on the spendy side but they save a big chunk of time by eliminating the need to remove them. I used them for a wall hanging and once I was done piecing the top, I just rinsed it in the sink under running water. 90% of the stiffness was washed out. I didn't mind a little stiffness for a hanging though so didn't worry about washing the finished quilt. I imagine after a couple washings, the stiffness would have been completely gone.

    I'm not totally sure but I think I just bought some Soft-Fuse from my LQS. I think that is what the lady told me it was called. It's really thin, has a paper back and is supposed to be soft right away after fusing. It came on a big bolt but doesn't have any writing on the paper side. I haven't used it yet though. I must have figured I was going to like it though because I bought three yards! :)
