I have neverheard of it. What is it? How is it used? Where do you purchase it? Etc......
I maybe wrong, but I think you are refering to a product called "Tear and Rinse" This product is used with needle turn applique. Judy Neimeyer uses it with her Applique quilts, and this is the only place I know of to purchase it.
I don't remember how to use it as I am NOT a fan of applique, but we were given a demo at her retreats. Sorry I couldn't be more help.

I believe this may be what you are asking about. I use Stitch & Ditch Stabilizer. It comes on a roll and is kind of like tissue paper, maybe a little thicker. It just pulls apart from your stitches without tearing the stitches and instructions say what doesn't come out is removed by putting the quilt in the dryer on the fluff cycle and tumbling. Got it at the lqs. Hope this helps.
I have a pkg right here ... it's called 'Ultimate Template Paper"
It came from Pear P Pereira Designs in San Marcos (which is also where Quilt in a Day store is) and web ssiteis PSDesigns.com
It says Easy to use
Easy to trace easy to release
safe for ink jet printers only
use for 'several types' of applique ...
25 sheets in the pkg ... I'm just starting a project - it feels kind of like pre-cut freezer paper, but it's nice and flat and reg sheet of paper in size.
I cannot change 'things', but I can change how I feel about them. Me.

There is a paper called Ricky Timms Poly-stuff, and a similar product called Stable Magic. It's slightly thicker than copy paper, but has a rough finish. There is no adhesive. For applique, you cut your exact shape out of the paper, then cut the fabric a little larger, for a seam allowance. Then you glue down the seam allowance around the edges of the paper. After you applique the piece on to the background, you wash it or dip it in water. The paper under the applique dissolves into soft fibers inside and your applique feels soft. (You use a washable glue.)
Here's a link to the Ricky Timms brand.
Plain old freezer paper is also used for applique, in several different ways. Cut out the applique shapes in the freezer paper, either straight up or a mirror image.
Iron a mirror image freezer paper template to the wrong side of the applique fabric. Sew the applique about 7/8 of the way around, leaving an opening. Reach in to the opening and peel the freezer paper off the fabric and pull it out. You might need to use tweezers or a hemostat to grab the paper. At the opening, turn the seam allowance under and finish appliqueing the piece.
Or, if you're NOT a klutz (I can't do this one ), lay your template on the wrong side of the applique fabric, shiny side up, paper side next to wrong side of the applique fabric. With the very tip of your iron, or your Clover mini iron, press the seam allowance over the shiny edge of the freezer paper. When the seam allowance is all held down, sew on the applique leaving an opening. Remove the paper, like above, but this is easier because the paper is only held at the edges.
OR... you can iron the freezer paper template on top of your applique fabric, and use it as a guide to tell you where to turn under the seam allowance and sew down. It will start to come off, but you can pop it down again with your iron.
The last two techniques don't need a mirror image template. The first does.
Kay-lin that is exactly what you do with the "Tear and Rinse" the I posted about. Judy uses it exactly like to describe for all her applique quilts. I suppose there are lots of products out there that will do the same thing. This is the only one I know of.

This paper is supposed to be fused to organza. -THEN PEEL OFF THE BACK OF THE PAPER AND FUSE IT TO MY FABRIC. IT IS SUPPOSED TO MAKE A WINDOW ON A HOUSE. SO WHATE EVER IT IS -it has tobe double sided sticky. Sorry to make it look like I was shouting. I did not know how to turn it off on my new kindle fire.
By using this applique paper and organza it is supposed to make your windows look like they have realistic looking window pains.
So you can fuse organza to a color, like over yellow for nightime light coming through the window, or blue or gray for daytime? That would be cool. Sorry I can't help you there, but I'd love to see it.
Sewnso, I was wondering if we were talking about the same thing with a different name.
