Easy quilting design
Create Your Own Center
Cut full length strips (42”+) and piece together into a large strip set.
We cut the center 27” wide and used the remainder of the
strip set for the top and bottom borders. You may need to make
length adjustments to fit your curved borders.
Our project is 38.5” x 52”.
On the Wall with Fusible Fleece
Click above photo to view a larger image.
The fusible fleece is the batting and the backing for the Halloween Baby Grand. I knew it was going on the wall and I wanted to see if the fleece gave it enough heft to hang properly with limited quilting…it does hang beautifully. I also skipped the binding and finished the edges with decorative rotary cutting. Now this is a speedy project!
- Fuse using the manufacturers instruction. We used Pellon Fusible Thermolan Plus TP971F
- Quilt as much or little as desired.
- Square project and stitch ½” from edges.
- Position ruler with the ¼” line on the stitching line and trim with a decorative cutter.
On the Table with Fusible Fleece

MIQ 135. The Fusible Fleece is the batting and the backing for this project. The runner will be whisked off when we use the table for eating; I don’t expect to wash it! Eliminating the backing is just one of the time saving adaptations.
