Tutorial Tuesday – Pinless Basting (and Misty Fuse Giveaway!)


So What is Misty Fuse? you ask….

“Mistyfuse®

Use paper-less Mistyfuse® for all weights of fabric from velvets and cottons to delicate tulles and organzas. It’s a dream to work with—it handles well, is incredibly sheer, doesn’t add bulk to your fused piece and bonds firmly once cooled. And since there is no added adhesive, it will never gum up your scissors or quilting needles. Each package comes with simple instructions for easy fusing with no waste. Mistyfuse White is perfect for fusing with any fabric.”

(shhhhh. I stole that straight from the website. :P)  http://www.mistyfuse.com/

I first discovered this amazing substance a few years ago. A customer had come to the LQS where I played around worked, and was looking for an alternative to pin basting her quilts. ( Seriously, aren’t we all?) So the owner showed her Misty Fuse. The customer loved it so much, she was back the next day to order several bolts. Something about the whole situation just made me want to try it. This is NOT the only use for this product and I plan to show you more fabulous things you can do, but for now, enjoy the idea of painless basting your quilts.

50 yards of Misty Fuse

This is the 50 yard bolt of Misty Fuse that I won on Facebook!

Misty Fuse is very light and sheer.

You can barely see it, as Misty Fuse is so lightweight. You will never know it is inside your quilt!

Batting laid down with Misty Fuse layered over top.

I have laid the batting down first. Next I laid Misty Fuse over top. Batting and MF are larger than my quilt top.

Quilt top finishes part one of the sandwich.

Now the quilt top goes on top of the Misty Fuse. At this point I will press the top starting in the center and evenly cover the entire quilt top. Do not allow the iron to contact the Misty Fuse.

Misty Fuse has done it's job.

I am lifting the edge here to see if the MF has fused the layers together. If the layers still lift, simply continue to press until the layers are fused. Trim away the excess Misty Fuse. I save these small pieces for future projects.

Step two of fusing the quilt sandwich.

Flip the entire sandwich over. Place another layer of MF on the backing side of the batting, then layer the backing on top. Repeat the pressing to fuse the backing to the quilt sandwich.

The finished fused quilt.

My little quilt is now ready for quilting. The entire process took a few minutes and not a single pin was involved!

I wish you could feel how light the quilt stays, even with two layers of fusible in the quilt. Better yet, it will not affect your needle in any way. No thud, thud, thud as you are sewing, no chunks of fusible gluey residue. Misty Fuse is a wonderful fusible web product and I can not sing it’s praises loud enough! In fact, I want you to know just how fabulous this stuff is… I am GIVING AWAY 5 YARDS OF MISTY FUSE to one of my readers. Here’s what you have to do….

  7. This is going to sound a little silly, but……..I’ve always thought Misty Fuse was just for applique. I never really looked into the product. Kelly over at I Have A Notion has been having a month full of giveaways and I think she offered Misty Fuse as a prize. I’m going to have to go back and check it out – you should too! Anyway, I’ve just started free motion quilting on my little Janome and have been wondering how to baste a larger quilt without pins. Now I don’t have to research anymore! Really, I’m not just saying this because I want to win! Thank you for introducing this to us 🙂 Sorry about all that rambling! 5 FREE yards would be great!

  18. I have tried crawling around on the floor to layer my quilts properly and smoothly, tried basting, tried clipping, pinning and spraying. All of these ended up putting me in a chair with a heating pad on my back! Misty quilt sounds WONDERFUL! I would love to be a winnter and have 5 yards to use on my next quilting project which is a small quilt to go in a craft show that will benefit our local YWCA.

    Happy Quilting!

  63. Hi, I have never used Misty Fuse before and it sounds like a wonderful solution to basting without pins. I am curious, however, if you use this fusible, is it still possible to wash the quilt? Would this be an option for a bed quilt or would I still need to resort to basting pins? I have been told that using fusible webs such as WonderUnder and SteamASeam negates the option of washing the quilt.

  140. Bradie, Please include the name of the Manufacturer when you give us the update. Do you know how this would work for fleece or Minkie? I have some baby blankets coming up and this looks just like the perfect thing when they are on the longarm.

Would love to be a fly on your wall at dinnertime and hear the conversations! Thanks for the info about misty fuse. I have never heard about it, but it’s on my list. Have you ever used it for larger projects, like a lap quilt?
    Hope you’re having a fabulous week. I sure enjoyed reading about your family!

  157. I have just discovered your Blog tonight. I put in a search for bloggers in Alberta, where I was born,raised and still live and I came upon your blog. I will definitely be subscribing (when I figure out how). I absolutely love misty fuse and have never even thought of using instead of pins or 505 for basting! I have just finished piecing a quilt for the Heritage PArk Quilt show and I have just decided I am going to try using misty fuse to baste it! Also, I am very excited because I did not realize you could buy it by the roll. Great post!

    Debi Rodriguez: Misty Fuse sounds like it would work to fuse pieces of batting together, too. I don’t like whip stitching two smaller pieces of batting together, it’s a PITA! lol
