how many of you use or like the fusible batting. this quilt store that i go to a lady had mentioned that she liked to use it for any thing from crib size on down to small stuff. i haven't never used it. i have looked at it and thought about buying it.

I Have used it up to twin size. It was nice to not worry about avoiding pins when machine quilting, and I even hand quilted a lap quilt with it. That made me very nervous - not basting it first! - but it was fine.

The ones I used were VERY low-loft. Not just low loft, which I like just fine, but lower loft than I care for. But the quilting part went fine.

I use it all the time and look for it whenever I buy batting. It's much easier to quilt without getting wrinkles.

I have made queen size quilts - that's the biggest. I also make twin size and throws.

Yes, called June Tailor Quilter's Fusible Batting. I prefer low loft. There is also a web site www.junetailor.com

I used the low loft for the first time in my guitar applique wallhanging. I didn't have any problems. It was very stiff, but when my project was completed, I washed it in cold & it was very soft.

I have used it but I was not crazy for it. Too low loft. But it is great for crafts, like totes and things!

I used it and will not use it again for a large quilt. It was as stiff as a board and I had trouble getting it to cooperate. Don't recall the brand. Generally, I would give fusible batts a thumbs down.
