I got some Misty Fuse bonding web for machine applique, and the directions say to use a non-stick layer to protect the iron, and for when you want to fuse the web to only one piece of fabric. (instead of fusing 2 pieces together)

Of course I am not one to meticulously plan out the steps I should follow, and just kind of wing it as I go along, so I had already cut out the fabric pieces that needed to be appliqued. (TINY little pieces that would have been SO MUCH EASIER to fuse the web to FIRST, then cut out....grrrrrr to me for not thinking ahead!)

So anyways, when I did decide to READ the directions and think ahead for the next few blocks, I was amazed at how well the teflon liner worked!

Normally with a double sided, non paper backed web you HAVE to have the 2 layers to be fused ready, because it sticks instantly to top and bottom layers. Well it doesn't stick to the teflon! So I could iron the web to the cotton, webside down on the teflon, and it just peeled right off the teflon, webbing now attached to the cotton ready to be cut and fused!

I am making a monster quilt for my grandson, with appliqued monster "M's", and made a bunch of circles to be appliqued too. This quilt is a not-fully-planned-make-it-up-as-I-go-along project. The ONLY definitive thing I decided on was to make each block 10".

I found a tutorial on machine trapunto, so I did that for the pre-printed monster blocks. I FMQ'd it, and with the teflon liner in place the FMQ is so easy, I was really reluctant to switch my machine back to regular sewing! (good thing I did though or I would have never tried it for the misty fuse!)

Oh, and I figured out why all my needles were breaking the last time I tried to FMQ! The screw had come loose that holds on the WHOLE needle shank/foot piece, so it was wiggling all over the place! It was not noticeable in regular straight sewing! Once I tightened that up, FMQ was a breeze! I can honestly say I ENJOYED it this time.

I have a couple of teflon baking sheets in the studio. I use them to fuse interfacing to already cut out garment pieces. When working with almost any type of fusible, I pull out a teflon sheet and work over it.

Where did you get the teflon sheet?

I am a Quilter at heart. I love to play with fabrics, patterns and colors. Recently I have discovered I enjoy doing applique. I love making pictures. Using a sewing machine is much easier than counted cross stitch or oil painting for me. I enjoy landscape quilting as well. I am working on my first applique project in the spring of 2014.

I got mine from Amazon.com, because I have Amazon Prime for free shipping and I had a gift certificate. It was only $8.00!

You can also use parchment paper. I bought a couple rolls when it was at Grocery Outlet.

My grandmother taught me to sew when I was 10, and I've been sewing ever since.
