    I have found a product called Fusiboo that I like quite a lot. Have used it for 2 wall hangings, and the table topper I posted a few days ago. It's easy and seems quite effective, but I don't know how it holds up over time. It is 100% cotton and has fusing on both sides. Does anyone have experience with this and do you see any major differences after washings between Fusiboo and say, Warm and Natural? My wall hangings won't have a regular wash, but the table topper and future baby quilts will. Thanks for reading.

    I haven't used it yet but have been reading about it. I'll be anxious to see the answers you get here. I would think that if it's quilted according to the directions you wouldn't have any trouble after washing. Hmmm-let's wait for the experts to answer.

    I would make sure and quilt it, I don't think I would trust the fusible after too many washings :D:D:D

    Thanks - that was also my thought.

    I think it is a combination of Bamboo and Cotton.

    I just tried it out in a table runner, but I'm not finished. I believe you need to quilt with it, because the stabilizer washes out. If you never plan to wash the item (wallhanging?) I suppose that is okay, but I would expect to wash everything, so I'm quilting anyway.

    So far I like it, and it's just the right thickness for bags, wallhangings and table items.

    And yes, it is partly Bamboo.

    I just finished quilting one of my table toppers filled with Fusiboo. The package says 2" but mine is more like 3-4" on diagonals, so I think it should be fine. It's a table topper and will likely go on a coffee table or end table - likely not to be washed too often barring careless spills. Thanks for your input.
