Draw your motif or print it directly on Wash-Away Applique Sheets with an ink-jet printer. Then fuse the paper to your applique fabric, sew on the motif, and wash away the paper after stitching. Appliques are soft and flexible without the need to cut your quilt or remove freezer paper. (American Sewing Guild-Notions, April 1, 2010)
Designed by talented Beth Ferrier, author, teacher, designer and American Quilt Retailer columnist, Wash-Away Applique Sheets by C&T Publishing are a brilliant solution for using foundations and stabilizers for hand and machine applique. Use these clever sheets as you work and then simply wash them away when you are done! Good job, Beth! (American Quilt Retailer, May 1, 2010)
This product has many uses! C&T's Wash-Away applique Sheets are printable, single-sided fusible and water-soluble for a crisp, clean edge to your next applique project - removal is unnecessary. Also useful for foundation piecing, English paper piecing, string piecing and more! (Quiltmaker, September 1, 2010)
There have been some exciting innovations in the materials available to quilters these days. Of interest to appliquers comes Wash-Away Applique Sheets from C&T Publishing. These sheets are printable, watersoluble, single-sided fusible and eco-friendly. They are sized to 8 12 x 11 and are sturdy enough to be run through your printer. Use these with your ink-jet printer for applique templates or foundation piecing. If you are hesitant to use these in your printer, they are also transparent enough that you could also hand trace your applique design to the sheet. When your project is finished you have the option of washing the sheet for a softer feeling piece or leaving it in and it will soften over time. Fans of paper piecing can fuse the first piece of fabric to the sheet thus avoiding ripping paper off and risking damaging your stitches. The end result is that you will find you have a crisp clean edge for your applique stitching plus save time in drawing multiple templates for certain block patterns.
The wash away applique sheets are a little thick, so if you leave them in and want to hand quilt, you will be an unhappy camper. Also, because of the fusible, even if you try to wash them away before assembling your quilt, some of the fusible residue will remain in your quilt (at least it did in my quilts).
