    I don't know the name of it, I only saw it for the first time today, and the lady who showed me hadn't used it yet, it is batting that you iron on to the quilt top then turn it over and iron on the backing.
    it saves you have to baste the 3 pieces together

    it is fusible but feels and looks like wool is a creamy colour, is very wide big enough for a queen size bed once opened up, you iron on one side then turn it over and do the other side, she says once done it won't move, I saw some other that was white but like wadding but very very thin same idea fusible on both side

    sounds like the stuff from Pellon. Is it called Fusi Batting? Fusi Boo? Something like that. Saw it at Paducah show, but the booth was so busy I couldn't see anything. I'd like to know if anyone ever has tried it yet, too. Very interesting. I like to iron, and hate the whole sandwhiching thing

    I have tried it (given some from an estate), I did not like it.

    I just got an email from Jhittlesewing.com and they have something that I think is what you are talikng about!

    "Heat Press Batting Together" is our newest and hottest selling item. This is a new product available in 10 yard packages and we are leaving it on page one for at least another week. This is a perfect item for quilters

    I am off to check it out now!!
    http://Jhittlesewing.com

    I was wrong :oops: It sounded right, but it is just a cloth tape you iron on both sides of batting at the edges and the iron on the front and back of quilt. at the edges!!! Does nothing to or for the middle!

    Sorry....my hopes were waaay up for this!

    I"ve used it on tablerunners and wallhangers but not sure if I could use it on a larger quilt beings ironing that big of quilt with the basting would be difficult. I would suggest trying it on something smaller before using it on something big. I did like though :thumbup:

    There is also Heirloom 80/20 Fusible batting. You iron it on both sides at the same time. If you get a wrinkle just pull it up and repress. Once you wash the quilt the chemicals that are used for the fusible part washes away.

    I've not used it, just heard about it at the Knoxville show. It's by Hobbs. I may carry it once my shop is open. I don't have prices on it yet.

    I've used fusible batting a lot. I don't like it that much and won't be buying anymore. It's o.k. for small pieces, but would never work for large quilts. I've found it doesn't stick all that well and it simply is more bother than pinning or spray basting.

    Add me to the list of those who love your kitty. I had one that looked just like it once...then it grew up! But Missy is still cute!

    Good luck with the fusible stuff...I'd like to know what it is, too.

    It sounds good but in practice, not so much! I recently was asked to do the quilting by a friend who had already fused the batting to the top and back. However, I discovered that the back needed to be adjusted since she had a design incorporated in it and it was a real BEAR to reheat and then move the back on the fusible batting! Also, if you aren't careful when trying to reheat, it will rip and then you are left with a place where there is no fusible web left on the batting. I love to try new things but have informed everyone I know not to use fusible batting if they want me to do any quilting!

    I have used that. JoAnns carries it, but I prefer the low natural batting.

    I use it all the time. It does cost more but with the 40% off at Joann's, not bad. I do hand quilting in a hoop. After getting my quilt all put together I baste a strip of fabric, about 4 inches wide all around the quilt. This seals the edge and allows me to quilt right up to the edge. Then I start in the center and quilt out. This way I can take the quilt with me, in the trailer, and quilt all winter while we are camping in Mexico.

    Does it have paper on one side so it doesn't stick to the ironing board when you iron the first side? (Like fusibles for applique.)

    That's it! Ithought so but wasnt sure. I am pretty sure they don't sell this at Joann's. At least not that i've seen. Fusi-boo. that's definitely it.
