Hobbs has taken their best selling batting, Heirloom Cotton (80% cotton / 20% polyester) and added the convenience of making it fusible. With Hobbs fusible wadding you don’t have to waste time pinning your quilt sandwich together. With this wadding it's possible to temporarily attach top and bottom fabric to the wadding just by ironing, eliminating the need for basting. Your hands and back will thank you. And this wadding quilts like a dream.
Sold by the metre which is 2.4 metre wide.

Excellent for quilt-as-you-go blocks

I am very happy with the product, and the blocks have remained attached to the wadding for many weeks as I am very slowly progressing with my quilt. My only mistake was in not realising the wadding was doubled until after I had quilted a few blocks. Now I have separated the two layers, it is much more workable. I have not yet experienced the product in a completed, washed quilt.

great to work with...love the fact of not having to pin/baste the quilt sandwich
Where have I been hiding?

I didn't know this product existed until I visited your store in October at the Quilt Show in Brisbane. I must admit I was a bit sceptical about using it but decided to use it on a small quilt I have made for my new nephew. The batting irons on so easily and allows you to move it if you get a crease in the fabric whilst ironing. It came up better than if I had hand basted the quilt and then it stayed put while I quilted the entire quilt over a number of days. I will not hesitate to use this product again. Oh, and I have recommended it to my quilting group and a couple of them have tried it too and are happy with the success of it.

Nice and soft. Handles well. Like the convenience of just ironing it in between the fabrics. I'm looking forward to using it in my next quilt and seeing what it's like.

I have worked with sprays and batting etc before
without success. The Hobbs fusible has so far worked well - I have only done a small quilt, 45" x 55" - so not sure how I would manage a queen or king sized. I ironed and then quilted within the same day - not sure how it would stick if left for a few days or weeks, but will give it a try. Would need a large surface to iron on if doing a large quilt as ironing board would probably not be successful, but would be interested to hear other opinions.
