    Well, I used it once on the quilt I'm doing. It didn't work.
    I followed the directions and ironed it to the fabric. Was nice for about 14 minutes.

    Now I've quilted the quilt and it bunched, and came apart. I won't buy it again.

    BTW when it came apart I spray basted it together, and the spray baste wouldn't stick. My first time for that to happen. Used 505.

    I have had a few bad experiences with the June Taylor line. I hesitate to buy anything with that name.......Just me....

    I don't know about June Tailor's brand, but I bought the Mountain Mist fusible batting, also from Joann's, and used it for a project recently and it worked very well. The only thing that I didn't like about it, is that I had to quilt it no more than 2'' apart, I don't normally quilt that close. For that project, it was a wall hanging, so it didn't matter the heavy quilting.

    I wouldn't recommend the June Taylor fusible batting. Too many problems with it to mention. Hobbs makes a good one and the Mountain Mist is also acceptable. I've used these as they were given to me as gifts. I, personally, use Warm & Natural batting with 505 temporary spray adhesive. I pin baste, as well, if I can't get to the quilting within 2 weeks. Hope this helps.

    I haven't used this brand, but I have tried Pellon brand and don't really like it. It doesn't stay fused and I especially don't like that the fabric looks lumpy after fusing. I think all the moisture from the steam during fusing causes the fabric to ripple and pucker. I use it if I want a think polyester batting, but I don't fuse it, I just baste as usual.

    Really not a fan of the fusible batting. It just did not hold. I thought when I purchased I was onto something ..... Well it was quite dissapointing. Spray baste .. now thats something to be happy about.... life changing!

    Amen to spray basting. However, the spray also makes a difference. I only use 505 spray. I've tried June Taylor, Sulky, several others and I stick with the 505. It cost more, but I don't get gummed up needles when quilting. That would be a good thing.

    I would use it for small projects and LOTS of steam in the iron. I did use up the roll I bought but would not buy it again.

    I used fusible batting once on a baby quilt. It seemed to work OK for that, but not really worth the bother. It seems more difficult to get the layers alined and laid out as smoothly as I'd like, and would likely be almost impossible on a larger quilt.

    Since I learned Sharon Schamber's method of basting with a herringbone stitch using tatting thread I've been pretty happy with the results, especially on bed-size quilts. I also use 505 to spray-baste smaller projects and like it a lot!

    I have only used it for coasters, and purses, not on any quilts.
