    I'm working on my hubby's older sister's quilt (Twin Size) and this quilt I won't send out for quilting cause another older sister she just bought a Bernina that can quilt. she would like to practice her quilting. we knew the hancock has discount 50% for all battings and they also have FUSI-BOO BATTING on sale too...we would like to know that FUSI works good with quilting or not. It has 2 fusible side, very simply sandwich a layer of batting between quilt top and backing, just press with steam iron on ( they say that on the package)........please advice and share your expreriences to me......thank you

    (the top quilt will be done by tomorrow)

    I've never used that brand but I have used other fusible battings, and I've also just spray basted an ordinary batting to the top and backing. Both worked well for me.
    Good luck.

    I've not used that specific batting, but the fusible ones don't work well if you've starched your fabric. Also I wouldn't use it for anything larger than say a wall size one. I've not been very successful with fusible batts!

    I have tried a couple of battings that had fusible, it didn't fuse evenly, came loose, and I was not happy with it at all... I ended up having to pin it :(

    I am intersted in hearing about this brand, though :D:D:D
