Basting is a ZIP™!!!

Cut or tear sections off the Mistyfuse Zips™ to have bits of Mistyfuse® spaced (somewhat) evenly over the batting. Spots of Mistyfuse. (Not to worry if spaces are exactly equal, or if there is a wrinkle or fold here and there! Weightless Mistyfuse is very forgiving and even if you had a kink in it, it would still be undetectable in your finished quilt.) Smooth your quilttop over the Mistyfuse Zips-dotted batting and iron just enough (with or without steam) for Mistyfuse to send its fine, engineered fingers into the layers to secure them together. Turn the assembly over and repeat for the quilt-back fabric. Alternately, apply the Mistyfuse bits-of-Zips to the back of your quilttop and quilt-back first. These spots of Zips are like virtual pins.

Note: Always cover exposed Mistyfuse with a Goddess Sheet® or parchment paper to protect your iron. Once ironed, assemble your sandwich and iron just enough, front and back, to secure the layers together. That’s it!

Your sandwich is now perfectly secured and ready for the most successful stitching ever!
