Hi, there - I just butt pieces of batting up against each other and zigzag them together with the sewing machine - a nice wide zig zag that will catch both pieces. I've done that with a baby crib sized quilt and had no trouble!


I guess you iron it on? but you would have to be careful ironing some battings - I guess use a press cloth? I usually just zig zag my batting together, it works fine even with little gaps

The people at my quilt shop recommended a product like this the last time we met for Bernina club. I haven't tried it yet, but was thinking at the time it would be a good idea. I would like to know also if there are other ways. I did try zig zagging one time, but I wasn't pleased with the results as it left a noticeable indentation at the seams which showed on the finished project, eventhough it was low loft.


I am intrigued by the fusible batting tape, interested to hear any experiences. I use 3-step zig zag to stitch batting together- fine for a cushion and small items


My mum just whipstitches the pieces together........but she handquilts, so I don't know if that makes a difference.


a friend of mine has used fusible batting tape and she loves it! she used to sew it together but says that there are no lumps or bumps in her quilts anymore ...


I've heard of this stuff. You can do the same thing with lightweight fusible interfacing (the lightest weight non-woven) but it only comes in 20" wide, so the tape roll would be handy. I would also use a press cloth. I did the zig-zag once for a small project and it was fine. The one tip that I found was to not cut it in a straight line, but to cut within like 2-3" kind of back and forth, so that when you quilt in a straight line it would catch both battings, if that makes sense?

How do you do the back of the QAYG? The only ones I've seen have you do the entire project like that (like a table runner or placemat) not individual quilt blocks. How would you join them together without seeing the seams on the back side?

Thanks for all the great comments! I'm going to the fabric store today to get velcro so I can finish the laptop sleeve pattern, and will look for this fusible tape.

Erin: Once I have all the blocks quilted I will show how to attach them. I have to finish all of them first, because then you trim them all to match the size of the smallest block.
