Considering this, can you use fusible fleece for quilting?
The fusible fleece will not take as high a heat setting as your cotton fabric. I use fusible fleece for most of my art quilts/ wall hangings and it works great, no gummy neeedles, quilts very easily. The way I would do it is to fuse it to the backing fabric, then pin or spray baste the top on.
Likewise, do I have to use batting in a quilt? Typically, current quilters balk at the idea of not using some type of batting between their quilt top and backing, but making a beautiful summer quilt without batting is a perfectly sensible idea. Even very thin low-loft batting inside a quilt can still be slightly warm.
Similarly one may ask, what Batting do you use for placemats?
All the battings below work well for placemats and table runners - so it will be up to you to decide on which one is best for you.
- Cotton / Polyester Blend (such as Hobbs Heirloom 80% cotton, 20% polyester)
- Fusible Cotton / Polyester Blend (such as Hobb's Fusible)
- Pellon Fusible Fleece.
What is the difference between fusible interfacing and batting?
Fusible interfacing will give a little stiffness to collars and cuffs on shirts. Fusible fleece is often used as the batting when making vests, tablerunners, or placemats. The fusible fleece gives the item a little thickness helping any quilting texture to show nicely without the bulk of regular quilt batting.
