    Yes I'v used it. It was ok. Liked using the basting spray better. Problem was it was bulkey to manage on the ironing board.

    I'm really new at all of this and was wondering if the fusible batting or the spray ever makes the needle sticky??? I've been sewing for forty years, but just started quilting. I remember fusible products used to make the sewing machine needle drag. I gather they have improved these products to prevent this??? Thanks so much to everyone on this board. I have learned SO much from reading the posts.

    I think it's by Hobbs. I tried it a couple of times and did not like it at all. I will stick to the spray basting. Much easier, works with any batting, and don't have to shop around for it.

    I tried it when I took a land scape class(quilt,Of course), I didn't like the feel of the finished product, but it was only a wall hanging so I wasn't too upset.

    I bought some once it was awful. I tested it on a small piece of scrap material and it was so stiff you would not want to use it on a quilt. Still have the rest of it in the closet just in case I find something I can use it on.

    That sounds interesting but I wonder how easy it would be to iron on a large quilt?

    I used the 'Fusi-Boo" by Fairfield on a small wall-hanging. It made the piece rather stiff, wouldn't like to use it for a larger quilt, but was easy to handle for machine quilting. The stiffness washed out when I was finished. I have a (double-bed size) quilt fused with Hobb's 80/20 fusible that I haven't started to quilt yet, but I think I'm going to have to pin at least the edges since it really hasn't stood up to handling very well and I'm doubtful about all the manipulation it will need for machine quilting. A friend used the June Taylor fusible batting for a table-runner and it just tore apart when she tried to reposition it.

    Hello
    Also using batting we use in our Cotton Theory projects works great too. You can steam press the pieces together and still pull them apart and repress. This batting works great and can be purchased from www.quiltyard.com
    The batting gives projects a lovely drape too. Happy sewing. Helen

    i bought some for a Queen bed quilt (just try to iron that puppy, no fun.) plus the stuff on the back was to web-by. i ended up pulling it all off. my friend Jackie won't even use it with her long arm. Better to stick to the reg. stuff that you know will work.

    I love fusible batting especially for smaller projects. It is stiff while quilting but once you wash it, it softens up.

    I don't use the ironing board to put it together. I lay it out on the floor, not on a high nap rug, and iron it there. I have never tried to sew through it. I use June Tailor brand. I did buy some fuseable cotton batt from them. It would not bond. Sent them an E about it and they sent me a new one, it was fine. I do queen size quilts.

    I took a quilting class a couple of weeks ago and we were talking about basting the quilt. I have always spray basted mine as I didn't want to take the time to hand baste or pin. The instructor said that she just puts her ironed backing on a table and STEAM BASTES her batting with her iron to it and then does the same to the top. She said just the steam will hold it and you don't need the spray. I haven't tried it yet, but it's worth a try.

    Does she place the iron directly on the batting itself or does she use some type of ironing cloth over the batting?

    I have used fusable batting and like it for smaller projects. I got mine at JoAn's in the batting section. It comes in different sizes and is packaged just like regular batting.

    I think she just puts the iron right on the batting too. I think she uses cotton batting. You might try a little sample of the batting you are using and see if it will work for you.
