do you prefer to fuse whole chunks of fabric or do you prefer to just select little parts as you go?
I’m still figuring it out. I tend to be stingy with the fusible, but if I’m going to use most of the print I’ll do a big chunk.
I’m the same, but because I am stingy with the leftover bits of fabric!
There’s no reason not to be stingy. The fusible adds cost to the project, and quilting is not a cheap sport!
Perhaps you can take the extra backgrounds and being ustilizing them in a shape that appeals to you. Try rotary or scissor cutting squares or rectangles and storing them together. Or cut them into ovals, raindrops, hearts, circles, or moons, etc. Then you’ll have them someday for a great piece or to add to collages!
I’m finding when I do a big chunk, the fabric falls off of the backing more easily, so I’m holding the iron a little longer as I press the whole thing.
