Jenny Haskins' Quilt Magic PLUS Double Fusible Fleece for Quilting and Home Dec
Quilt Magic Plus is the newest addition to the creative line of Jenny Haskins products for RNK Distributing. This fleece is incredibly soft, light weight and has a fusible coating on both sides! You can now fuse your quilt top and back to one piece of the fleece with NO pinning! This eliminates puckers and pulls when you begin quilting the quilt and reduces the amount of stitching needed to hold the quilt together!
Fusible quilt batting/fleece has been around for a while but not until now has there been a double-side version! The creative possibilities are endless!
Beginner quilters will enjoy the ease of stitching through multiple layers without the fabric shifting or “crawling”. This is extremely crucial where points and corners meet and the fabric is on the bias. Fusing the fleece to the back of the fabric will create much needed stability for stitching and will allow you to be more creative with your machine’s built in decorative stitches!
Sizes Available: JQMP1 (59” x 1 yd) JQMP5 (59” x 5 yds) JQMP15 (59” x 15yds)
To use Quilt Magic Plus:
1.If using a fabric that has a risk of shrinkage, it is advised to pre-shrink the fabric by pre-washing.
2.Pre- shrink Quilt Magic Plus Double Fusible Fleece by gently steaming (do not touch the iron surface to the fleece) just before pressing it to the fabric. 3.Try something fun and different!! If your goal is to have an antiquated looking quilt, do not pre-wash or pre-shrink your fabric and/or fusible fleece. When washed in warm water the fabric will slightly draw around the fused fleece creating a very unique quilted look. This technique works beautifully with redwork designs on premium quilt cotton.
Fusing Quilt Magic Plus between Fabrics: ** Because Quilt Magic Plus has a fusible coating on both sides, it is important to have a pressing sheet or parchment paper on hand when using to protect your iron and/or ironing board 1. Line your pressing surface with a piece of parchment paper or pressing sheet. 2. Align your fabric over the fleece and place on your pressing surface. 3. Press with your iron to bond the fleece to the fabric. (Do not use a “back and forth” motion, pick the iron up and move it each time) Steam is not necessary but will not harm the fleece if you use it while pressing the item. Be sure your iron touches the fabric, NOT the fleece. Use a second pressing sheet or a piece of parchment paper between your iron and cloth if necessary.
**Remember that steam will cause slight shrinkage in your fleece and fabric. Prep your materials by pre-shrinking if this is not your overall goal for the piece you are working on. 4. Flip the piece over and repeat the process. Because fabric is already bonded to one side it is not necessary to have your pressing surface covered unless some of the fleece is exposed. **It is not recommended to bond both fabric pieces at once. “Sandwiching” the fleece between two layers of fabric may seem like a short cut but the bottom (unseen) layer of fabric may become wrinkled. Do one side at a time! **Just like traditional quilt batting, it is also recommended to cut Quilt Magic Plus at least one inch larger than your fabric piece and then trim to size once it is fused in to place.
**Because all irons vary in temperature settings, it is important to do some testing before beginning your project. Start at a lower setting when fusing the fabric to fleece and gradually increase the heat setting until you get a good fuse!
