Yesterday I went and got some batting because all of the pieces I had were not big enough. I thought if I could get the quilt pinned that would be a very productive weekend. I found Quilters Fusible Batting by June Taylor. I thought this would be wonderful to use and save a lot of pinning. Everything was going well until I flipped it over while I was ironing and a part of it had wrinkled. Well, anyone that has used fusible anything knows it does not come apart that easy. To dissolve fusible it says to launder in cold water or rinse. I put it in the washer in cold water and then in the dryer. This is what I pulled out this morning. I have never had this happen to me before. The only thing I can think of that I changed on the machine was the stitch length. I went from 10 spi down to 6 spi. The only reason being is that I have had to rip them out before and it's not easy. So...I will go back to the drawing board and start over again. I will change my stitch back and see if it fixes anything. If that was the case though...why didn't all the seams come apart?? Oh well...
Things work out this way for a reason. I'm so glad it happened now and not after I finished it and gave it away. That would be traumatic for me.
I hope your Monday starts out better than mine did.
