Default fusible fleece???Help maybe a mistake..

I am making a wall hanging and have it all ready to quilt but I think I have maybe made a mistake..

I used pellon 987F fusible fleece and ironed it to the top and used a little 505 spray to hold the back.
I didn't have enough of the 505 spray to do both the back and front that is why I used the fusible fleece.

Is this going to be a problem that I used the fusible fleece? Does the fusible part wash out or is the fabric going to be stuck to it for good.

It really is stuck down good, I would like to have the wall hanging show the quilting , will it still show the quilting? This is the first time I used this product.. Thanks

Do you think I should try and peel this fusible fleece off and get some other batting? Don't know if it will distort the top when i try and remove it. This may be a little hard as it is really stuck down.. how do you remove it if I have to?? What a mess I should have waited and got something else, I really worked hard on this wall hanging. this wall hanging is for my church and I really wanted it to be perfect,, haha nothing I make is really perfect but I do try... Thanks for you help

I think fusible fleece will work ok for a wall hanging. I have used it for table runners that I like to be flat. I don't know what type of quilting you like to do, but quilting will show up. It just won't be puffy, of course. I don't think it will wash off or come lose and a wall hanging won't need frequent washing anyway. I would surely not try to remove it at this point. This may turn out to be a look you like for wall hangings!

Leave it on, and add another layer of batting if you want it to show more textue ( the back can be peeled from backing if you didn't overdo the 505.

Warm up a small section with your iron and see if it will peel without hurting the quilt. If it works, continue carefully, but if not, you'll have to add another layer of batting, but you won't get the effect you want with the Pellon bonded to the front.

Thanks everyone, I tried to take it off even with using a warm iron it can off in some places but the others stuck really good. I tried to pull it off but the top started to get distorted so I will leave it on and hope for the best.. Thanks for all of your help..
