Has anyone used heat n bond for appliques. Gotten some that says NO SEW BOND. Done all the blocks and notice a small stain on 2 blocks, washed tham and some of the appliques where lose.Have used this bonding before and had'nt had this problem. Tried to sew around design and needle got gummie so thats out, what can be done to hold designs on when washed, I wash everything after quilts are finished. Any advice?

all i can say is to be sure it's ironed down well then wash and dry COLD, the heat is what usually loosens it up

I usually use sewable Heat and Bond for applique work. So far no trouble with it gumming up my sewing needle. The heavy duty Heat and Bond gums up a needle pretty bad so if you're not sewing, it's okay to use.

if you want to use heat n bond for applique you need heat n bond lite...the other is not made for sewing later...about impossible to get a needle through. the regular is good for wall hangings, items that do not get washed...or sewn
sorry.

The lite you can sew thru...the heavy really gums up the needle and is stiff. You can't quilt thru this ...I tried! Ended up taking the needle out every few minutes and wiping down with rubbing alchol...
