One of the fusing rules I repeat often in my new online class, Fused Art Quilts: Tiny Homes, is fuse tacking. What’s that, you ask?
Fuse tacking is adding just a small amount of heat from the iron for a short amount of time to fused fabrics together. Fusible web is a heat activated glue and too much heat for too long of a time burns the glue into the fabric. Over fused fabric becomes stiff, it’s difficult to stitch and may fall off the design.
So be tacky! Fuse tack your fabric shapes into place when designing your composition.
You can learn even more about creating art quilts by joining my online class on Creative Spark, Fused Art Quilts: Tiny Homes.
