Selvedge quilt label!

I wish I could take credit for the idea, but I saw it on the Marcus blog. Neat-o!!

I didn't see a way to email you as your reply was set under no comment. You left a comment on my blog asking about fusible batting.

Were you asking about fusible batting for quilting? It's very easy to use but if you are like me and take forever to finish a project, you have to keep pressing the batting/pin basting it as it will separate from the fabric. I think it's a temporary fusible. It's very stiff even after washing several times It does eventually relax and works fine. I don't like having to keep pressing to make it work. Or..LOL. I'm not doing it right to make it stick.

If you are talking about fusible fleece, I'm still working with it. It's much thinner than the batting and is only fusible on one side. There are two kinds of fusible fleece, the craft kind for bags and more expensive for something like machine embroidered quilts.

Your best bet is to go to a quilt store and do a small project with it and see how it works for you. I did a twin size quilt with it and haven't used it since.

I hope that helps some.

Hi Kari

You left an a comment and question on my blog, but unfortunately no email address, so I hope you don't mind me leaving a comment here.

The blue and green fabric on my blog is a little lighter in weight than normal patchwork fabric, but is 100% cotton. There is no indication on the selvedge as to where or who manufactured this fabric. I too have been searching for more of it but as yet with no success.

I purchased it from Amitie in Bentleigh, they have a website but couln't find it there either.

Good luck in your search.
