The postie did bring along my fusible batting this week and yesterday I got it out the bag to get busy with. It’s so tacky that it sticks to itself and I really had to pull in out of the roll shape. I laid and smoothed out my backing fabric, the batting and the top on my table armed ready with an iron full of water and at top temp for a good steam.
It is as easy as all comments read and from what I have seen over the net. Because it’s on a table no need for crawling on the floor with those pins, although if I do pin, I do it over this same table. If you do find crinkles or air bubbles as you go it’s easy to pull away from you quilt and steam again. As Joyce suggests in her comment, once the front is done flip and repeat for the backing, she also recommended machine sewing around the edge of the quilt after fusing to stop the sandwich separating when quilting. The Snarky Quilter recommended re-ironing the quilt sandwich if need be when quilting. All handy hints. I chose to pin around the edge about 6-7 inches apart to stop the layers separating.
And the quilting of it is fantastic, not to have those pins caught up on the foot as you go a pleasure.
Looking forward to finishing the quilting today, earlier than thought and for the binding to be sorted tomorrow.
Hope you are all having a good weekend….
