Quilt With Us

I just started using fusiable applique process. I see that there are two types, no sew and  sewind one. Does the no sew one work?  Does it come off in the wash of the quilts?  How good does this work? Can someone explain how this process work?  Thanks.

I'm with Debbie.  I've never seen any fusible that will stick and withstand washings.  I sew around anything I fuse, except perhaps small items intended only for wall-hangings, and even then if you expect to roll them up or fold them for storage, they should be sewn down.

I sew around everything I fuse.  If you saw what multiple washing does to the quilt you might too.  All that work peeling off or frayed edges. (I normally fuse on children's quilts and they are used and washed a lot)   I use clear monofiliment thread so it hardly shows at all.

Read the directions on the fusible product. Buy the lightest for normal cotton. Some people cut out the center area for it can be stiff. Now to how well it will hold up,  washing much depends to how well it glued in the first place. Just to be safe I always stitch around the area. With all that said, I still love to turn a bit under all the way around and fusible helps hold it down until you can stitch.
