    Removing Fusible Web

    Need help on how to remove fusible web from fabric. I recently took an applique class that advised us to fuse three yards of fusible on the fabric. Thought at the time it was way too much for a simple applique project, and it was. More than twice as much as what I actually needed. And I didn't even fuse the whole amount! So now I have about 24 to 36" of fabric that's perfectly fine except it has the fusible webbing on it. I've tried picking it off with my nails & a pin. Spent more than an hour, and only got about 3" cleaned off. Is there an easy way to remove the webbing??

    I found this:

    Place a scrap piece of a cotton terry towel over the residue. Reheat the area with the iron for about 10 seconds. Immediately pull away the heated scrap - the reheated residue should pull away from the fabric and adhere to the scrap. Repeat this process until the residue has been completely removed.
    Blessed are the children of the piecemakers for they shall inherit the quilts!
