Applique` Sheets & Block #2

Lookie here now.......I was surfing the net and stumbled across this product.  My eyes nearly popped out of my head........could this stuff really work?  Do I dare try it out?

The description says that all I needed to do is draw or print out my design using an ink-jet printer, fuse the paper onto my fabric, sew it down then wash the product away after it's been stitched.

Is this too good to be true?  With things being so expensive lately, I'm taking a different approach.....before running out and buying it myself.....I'm asking for my blogger friends help.  Has anyone tried this product and if so, what's your opinion of it?

I do alot of machine applique using Steam-a-Seam, which is great but sometimes leaves the project alittle stiff so I'd love it if this "Wash-Away" works.  Please let me hear from you.


Everyone was so kind in helping me pick which block design  to sew next.  #1....better know as the one on the left  won out....I must admit, I had my fingers crossed for that one but I would have gone with either.

I use this stuff from Ricky Tims. I love it. It is what I'm using in the Iris Garden quilt. One word of warning: if you use anything that has gone thru your ink-jet printer, make sure you cut INSIDE the lines so none of the ink is in your applique. Why? because most ink-jet printer inks are not stable with water and will bleed. I tried an experiment and the black line of the pattern bled thru onto the yellow of the fabric.

No idea, but I trust paula & C&T (There are other brands that I would wonder about...)

Regarding Steam-a-Seam - are you using regular Steam-a-Seam OR Steam-a-Seam Lite. That makes a difference.

I have used Stacy Michell's Shades to Fust and like it very much. Try this website: http://www.shadestextiles.com/product%20pages/softfuse.html

I've never used it, but also will want to know what you think if you try it. Reading all the other comments also.

Never heard of this before!
BTW...I would pick the first applique block...I missed voting but I like it much better, although I'm not sure why!

Don't count the days, make the days count!
