Using Quilt Fuse for Church Banner Making
Quilt Fuse, also called Qulters Grid, gives you an opporutnity to make a patchwork type of church banner easily, in very little time. Quilt fuse is basically a fusible interfacing that has horizontal and vertical lines marked in varying one or two inch increments.

How to use Quilt Fuse:
  • Cut the desired amount of fabric squares.
  • Lay the bumpy side of quilt fuse up over a surface you can press on.
  • Find the exact center of the quilt fuse and place the squares, right side up in the desired pattern, beginning from the center and working outward.  Be sure to line your squares up evenly with the gridded lines on the fusible backing.
  • Beginning at one corner, lay your iron down firmly and press with a dry iron to fuse the squares. Use up and down motions with your iron to prevent any of your squares from shifting.
  • You will now sew all the horizontal rows and press them all one direction, using up and down motions.
  • Make small clips into the seam where the verticle rows will be.
  • Now sew all the vertical rows and press, using up and down motions.
  • Give your project a final pressing from the top side.
The beauty of using quilters grid, as you can see, is the perfectly matched corners...without pinning!  We have used this banner making method for making the "Cross" church banner, and have purchased it on point to use for pieced borders.  What other applications can you think of?
