At the fabric shop today, another customer said she uses the Reynolds Release foil when ironing Wonder under onto parts. No sticking, protects ironing board, I haven't tried it for this use yet, but it works great for other stuff, and I will play with it this afternoon.

Another trick added to this old dog's collection. :wink:

Sounds like a wonderful tip Moonpi. I don't have any but when I go in to town I am picking some up. Hate the sticky stuff on the ironing surface.

This is going to sound silly, but what is Reynolds Release foil and Wonder under?

Has living here in the Middle East has delayed my education on new stuff developed for quilters in the US?

Reynolds Release is aluminum foil that has been treated so food will not stick to it during the cooking (baking or grilling, etc.) process. It is relatively new --2 or 3 years???
WonderUnder is a fusible web product that you iron onto your fabric (I do it before I cut out my project) and then you iron it onto whatever you want to put it on. There is a paper backing that comes off before you bond it to whatever you are putting it on. There are a number of fusibles available now, but all work basically the same way.
Have a great quilting day. :-)

I just found out about another great applique trick for those of you who use the freezer paper and starch method. Instead of "painting" the starch on with a paintbrush, use a very small tipped squeeze bottle like the ones sold in a group of 4 from www.clotilde.com. The starch can be applied without having to carry around a brush, bottle and spray can of starch and it does not soak into the edges of the freezer paper template so you can continue to use the template over and over.
