The temporary fusible coating on this sheer, soft, non-stretch cutaway creates a bond that prevents fabrics from stretching or distorting. Use for supporting T-shirt quilts, bias-cut pieces, or simply to keep blocks from moving while adding sashing or borders. Ideal for flawless turned edge applique with sealed edges!
