This top was pieced by a group in CA and is one of 8 sent to me to finish and donate. Quilted with freehand swirls.
I tried the fusible tape on a batting today and for me it wasn’t as quick as zigzaging it on the machine — assuming the machine is already set up with thread, the right foot, and for me, the right plate as I tend to use a straight needle plate when I’m piecing.
Having said that — there are many times I pull a donation top and would piece together 2-3 scraps but don’t because the machine is set up for piecing. In those cases I can definitely see using the tape — assuming that it launders well (without pulling apart and creating gaps)….or rather than the tape which is expensive – I plan on trying the fusible interfacing suggested by one of my blog readers and using my GO to quickly cut it into strips.
So I’ll continue to zigzag the batting when I’m piecing multiple batts but will use the fusible when I’m just piecing one.
