Methods of Appliqué: How to do Fusible Appliqué

     Fusing is the quickest and easiest way to appliqué. Fusing works best on fabrics that don't fray easy. Fusing is not for all fabrics, so make sure you do a test on your fabric first. Heat Bond and Wonder Under are two brands that you can fuse with. Fusing paper can be found at your local fabric shop usually in the interfacing section of the store. Follow the manufactures directions carefully.

     The one negative drawback to appliqué by fusing is that if you take your quilt to a professional quilter to quilt it, she may refuse to do the job for you if used a fusing process. The reason why is because the glue like substance that sets the fabrics together by heat can stick and cause a build up on the sewing machine needle and cause the thread to break continuously. This can also happen to you if you are sewing on top of fusing appliqué. If this happens put a dab of cooking oil on a paper towel and keep it by your sewing machine. Occasionally place the oil on your finger and slide your finger up and down your machine needle. The oil keeps the fusing glue substance from sticking to your machine needle. Be careful not to use too much oil as it can get onto your project.
