Is the Quiltsmart interfacing fusible?
Yes, Quiltsmart patterns are printed on lightweight fusible interfacing.

Are there interfacing handles included in the Mondo Bag pattern?
April 2018:  We have updated the Mondo Bag Instructions so that the printed interfacing handles (& keystrap) are no longer necessary - you will only need the 4 rectangle grids. Instructions will be given for you to make the handles without the interfacing. We have also updated the Pocket & Key Strap instructions.This page works in conjunction with Mondo Bag instructions through Revision 9 (find Rev# in copyright under yardage chart). Please let us know if you have any questions - we are happy to help!  For more information, check out our article under "Free Downloads": Quiltsmart Mondo Bag UPDATE -April 2018

Where do I find product updates?

Find products updates in our FAQs section (right here!) if they are short.  Also check in our "Free Downloads" section (along the top navigation bar).  There are some pretty awesome variations there as well.

Fusible Brochure & Sample Project Potholder -
Instructions #3 - Should say:  to layer the flower and center, fuse, and zigzag to the background (this was omitted)...
#6 - Should say: Center and pin the insulating batting to the flower block (grid is not correct).  Why? Because when you sew the 2 blocks together, you stitch on the grid side and you don't want the lines hidden by the insulating batting.
Stitch around all 4 sides on the solid line (this was omitted), leaving the opening to turn. Trim edges even as needed, also trimming off the excess interfacing. (this was omitted)

Cutting Chart: Background / Pieced Corners:  Cut 6.25" (NOT 6.75") x 3.25" AND 6.25" x 9" (NOT 6.75")
Instruction #17: same issue - use 6.25".
This will be corrected in future prints.

Do you make presentations to guilds and shops?
Absolutely!  Mattie (and team) have taught the Quiltsmart methods in Australia, Germany, the Netherlands, Mexico, Spain, and around the United States.  We can custom tailor a program for you, or use one of our tried & true plans!  Email us at for more info.

Does the ink on the interfacing come off, wash off, or smear?
There was at one time a problem with a lot of interfacing we received and it caused the ink to not absorb into the interfacing.  We do NOT use that lot and it was not supposed to have been shipped to us.  The problem is resolved, but if you happen to have some, it might get some residue on your machine bed.  If it does, simply wipe it off right away with a soft cloth (paper towel is fine) and mild dish soap or regular hand soap.  Do not use anything that your machine manufacturer would not recommend to clean your sewing machine bed.
Our ink is water-based, so no chemicals.
The interfacing nor the ink will wash away in the washing machine.

Why does the interfacing sometimes have rough edges?
You might notice that we are a little "rough around the edges" lately.  Our supplier's cutting room has been shut down due to Covid-19. We are getting interfacing in, but we are cutting it ourselves.  It is not quite the same as a rotary cutter to fabric.  We appreciate your patience.  The edges will not affect your finished project.

Are there updates with the Double Wedding Ring Template? I made a quilt 20 years ago, want to make another.

Yes, the DWR template has changed over the years to reflect the popularity of the 2.5" strip introduced may years ago.  Originally, we used a 3" strip for our wedges.  That had a LOT of fudge factor, and we found that the 2.5" measurement would work just fine.  There is still fudge factor (as we all like chocolate!) and no worries for you.  The DWR quilt can be made with either template and either size strip. The template, either size, is centered over the strip. Our newest template is 2.5" tall, and easy to work with the 2.5" strips.
