I think you would only be able to quilt about a 3" or 4" swatch at a time. Less when you roll the quilt. I don't think it would be very efficient.

I agree with drying it on a hot setting. That's where the shrinkage occurs, and you want to get the shrink to happen before you put it into the quilt.

I really think your longarmer would be just fine with the 58" width. The width is easier to work with than the length. As long as she centers the quilt top and the backing, it will be just fine.

So I just looked up Misty Fuse. There's no paper, so do you draw your design directly onto it? Can you fuse it to one piece at a time? It's not making sense to me for applique.
