Have you been wishing that there was an easier way to baste quilts than tediously pinning (not to mention having to remove those pins as you quilt) or spraying a chemical glue that gets everywhere? Your wish has come true!

This product is so new that we just got an allocation not our whole order. Please order quickly to get instant shipping.

Quilters Select Free Fuse Basting Powder is a brand new fusible basting product that creates a semi-permanent bond between fabrics. 

To baste a quilt just lay out your batting, sprinkle on Free Fuse, and place your backing fabric over the batting.

Press with an iron and then flip the piece over, sprinkle Free Fuse on the other side of the batting, add your quilt top and press, and voila - your quilt is basted and ready for quilting AND you don't need to remove or quilt around safety pins or deal with a sewing machine needle that gets gunked up with glue.

Free Fuse has many other uses as well, such as art quilting, appliqué, fusing fabric to fabric, making your own fusible stabilizer, and lots more.

When Joanne Sharp discovered there was such a thing as glow-in-the-dark thread for domestic sewing, she knew some creative projects would appear in her future.

Glowing Ghosties is a fresh, fun idea to use the special thread for, along with a variety of the numerous decorative stitches on your machine. “Ghosties” can be used as a door decoration, party favors, as an appliqué on sweatshirts or costumes, or simply attaching to the front of a fabric trick or treat bag.

Hwasung Fortress: Suwon Hwasung Version 2, by Mikyung Jang of Seoul, South Korea, brings a whole new meaning to a wholecloth quilt. Mikyung has created an entire picture just by "painting" with thread. It's no wonder it won a Judge's Recognition Award at AQS QuiltWeek Paducah Spring 2018.
