  • Pellon fusible fleece

    I hope this is not too stupid of a question, but I am just starting out learning to quilt and am confused about batting. Is the Pellon fusible fleece the same thing as batting? This is also my first post so if I am putting this in the wrong forum, please let me know. Thanks,

    Hello Angelgirl

    Pellon fusible fleece is a stabilizer. It's used to make stable things (like pocket-to-go) or for applique.

    Batting is the center of the quilt, between the quilt top and the backing.

    Hope that helps

        I just bought pellon fusible fleece to make a pouch to hold a kindle. I think it is more for crafty things rather then a quilt.

            Welcome to the forum!

            I use fusible fleece to make tote bags. It's too stiff for a quilt.

            A lot of people like Warm and Natural or Quilters Dream for batting for a quilt.

            LOL - fabric with bats and baseball bats showed up!

              Fusible fleece is great for tablerunners, placemats, bags, mug rugs, etc...

                Welcome to the forum. I've used the fusible fleece in ditty bags.

                I really like Quilter's Dream Cotton batting for quilts. My machine thinks it's the best.

                    Hi! There are so many products out there, it's a good idea to ask.

                    If the fusible part was what caught your eye, Mountain Mist (and possibly June Tailor if I recall) makes a fusible batting. I've never used it but am looking into it for a couple of gift quilts I just want to throw together.
