I just watched Nancy's Notions and she showed basting with fusible web. interesting. This is paper backed fusible, on a roll or cut in strips. She used a tiny iron and touched the fusible webbing down onto the quilt back and tore about 1 inch off, moved and repeated, etc.
then laid the batting over the backing and smoothed that down and then ironed fusible in places on the cotton batting and smoothed the top of the quilt down and after removing the paper off of the webbing, ironed it all with steam. Interesting way to tack your quilt for quilting.

That sounds like it would be perfect for small projects,
but on a larger scale I will stick with spray basting.
Thank you for the information.

I have glue basted a lot of small things to quilt using Elmer's School Glue that washes out. The fusible is permanent though.

Many art quilters use their little scraps of Misty Fuse, which has no paper backing, to 'baste' their quilt sandwich. It's quick and easy...no different than spray basting actually...just scatter the bits on the batting, lay the top/backing over it and press. Voilą!

I saw that episode and thought the same thing. Taking the paper off would be a lot of trouble on a big quilt. And what if you missed one or two?
