  1. When I combine batting pieces, I also pay attention to the bias and grain. I check it the same way I check my cottons. Some batting also seems to have ‘right’ and ‘wrong’ sides.
    I do think your Quilty video gives a good beginners overview of combining batting. Thanks!

  2. If using cotton batting I use the product that can be ironed(pressed) to the two edges, thereby making one piece. It is quicker than stitching and works well.

  3. I also use batting tape and find it is quicker, works well and gives you a break from machine sewing.
