The 1 inch quilting squares that are fused into this interfacing make it easier to ensure that you cuts are straight and perfectly symmetrical. I am new to quilting and my sewing instructor recommended it and I am so glad she did. Unfortunately I could not find it anywhere locally. Luckily Overstock.Com had it in stock, delivered it quickly and I was ready to get started on my first quilt. I highly recommend it!
Be sure to check the yardage before you start using it; my bolt was short by approximately half. I called customer service and they gave me an in-store credit which was less than half the price I paid. Still, it saved me from having to drive back to the post office and pay for return shipping, so I accepted it. Also, the pellon is quite thin. From the photo I was expecting it to have a little more substance.
I have worked with fusible Pellon before, so knew what to expect. I live in an area where there are no fabric stores, so I must rely on the internet. This is lightweight, as is needed for a quilt so that it will not be too stiff or heavy. I will use it for a tee shirt quilt, which I have not tried before, so keeping my fingers crossed! Having read the other reviews, I measured the Pellon. It was only 2.5 inches short of the full 10 yards. It appeared to be packaged at the factory, was clean and wrinkle-free, except for several inches at the end inside the bolt, where it had been folded poorly. This may be difficult to use, as the product is fusible and, therefore, cannot be ironed prior to applying it to the fabric of the quilt. This is an excellent value, the best price I found on the internet, and is 45 inches wide, not the usual 22 inches of other types of Pellon.
Ordered this from overstock reluctantly since they aren't known as a quilt shop but it came fast and was exactly what I needed to stabilize tshirts for a quilt I am making... Thanks for offering such a wide variety of stuff with low shipping costs :) K****
