Default Name of batting?

A few years ago (5+) I used a thin iron batting in my table runners. You just ironed the backing onto batting, then your top to the other side. No pinning or basting needed. For the life of me I can't remember the name of it. Yesterday I did describe what I was looking for. The lady said she knew what I was looking for but also didn't lnow the name & wasn't sure if they sold it.

I used a Pellon fusible fleece, maybe that's what you're looking for? There's info on it, if you want to google it to see.

They sell it at Joanns, or they used to - it is a thin batting and irons on on both sides. Whatever Joann's regualr brand is - Fairchild? Fairfield? something like that

I like to use Hobbs 80/20 fusible quilt batt for table runners. Take a look at my QB tutorial Faux Flowers for an example of the loft.

The fusible fleece is sold in the interfacing department at JoAnn's. I don't use the fusible, but I love the non fusible Pellon fleece interfacing for placemats and table runners. Just the right thickness and it clings to the fabric so only a few pins are needed.
