june tailor Fusible Batting FAQ
June Tailor’s Quilter’s Fusible Batting™ is a high quality quilt batting that contains a fusible web. The fusible on the batting allows you to press all three layers of your quilt at one time! Quilter’s Fusible Batting™ eliminates the need for quilt basting sprays, pins or tacks. You can fuse your quilt in a fraction of the time with beautiful, professional looking results.
When using June
Tailor’s Quilter’s Fusible Batting, it is important to layer your quilt
top, batting and back before beginning to fuse. To fuse all three
layers of your quilt at once, set your iron on a wool setting with
heavy steam. Simply press your quilt from the center to the outer
edges. Make sure you keep your iron moving, pressing approximately 3-4
seconds in each area. Once you have covered the entire surface area of
your quilt, allow the quilt to cool. You may then begin quilting by
hand or machine.
June Tailor’s Quilter’s Fusible Batting™ is available in Low Loft Polyester, High Loft Polyester and Cotton.
To reposition the Quilter’s Fusible Batting™, simply reheat the area that is to be repositioned, with or without steam. Once the area is thoroughly heated, gently peel the fabric away from the batting, pull the fabric in the desired direction and immediately lay the fabric back onto batting, smoothing with your hands. You can then reheat the surface with or without steam to re-adhere your fabric to the fusible batting. Allow to cool.
You can fuse your quilt using June Tailor’s Quilter’s Fusible Batting™ on your ironing board or any other pressing surface that is large enough to hold your quilt. Please be mindful that the surface you choose to fuse your quilt on can withstand the heat and steam of an iron. June Tailor is not responsible for damage to a surface that is not meant for pressing.
When using June Tailor’s Low Loft Polyester or High Loft Polyester Fusible Batting™ you can quilt as far apart as 4” to 6” or as close together as you desire. When using June Tailor’s Cotton Fusible Batting, we recommend quilting as far apart as 3” to 5”, or as close together as you desire.
The Cotton Fusible Batting is preshrunk. If any shrinkage would occur, it would be a minimum of 2% to 3%. You should not experience any shrinkage with our Low Loft or High Loft Polyester Fusible Batting.
The Low Loft and High Loft Polyester Fusible Battings can feel stiff at first. This is because the batting contains a fusible, which is holding your quilt layers together. Once you have finished your quilt, you can rinse it in cold water. The rinsing process removes the fusible in the batting, softening your quilt. The fusible can remain in your quilt if you would like your quilt to have more body. You would simply not rinse your quilt in cold water to keep the fusible active.
June Tailor’s Quilter’s Fusible Batting™ can be stitched by hand or machine. The fusible holds your quilt layers together so they will not shift as you stitch.
