'Day After' Tuesday Tip - Use Your Batting Scraps!
Posted by pacificfabrics on Wednesday, June 1st, 2011
I'm a little late because of the holiday, but I've got a great thrifty tip for you this week! While working on table runners this month as I was preparing for our June Creative U, "Table Top Treats", I tried to use up bits of quilt batting I had in my stash. It seemed like I had plenty of useable pieces, but nothing was quite the right length.
Then I remembered that we have a fusible interfacing that comes in 1-1/2" pre-cut strips called Batting Seam Tape. It's the perfect tool for joining those small pieces together! You line up the edges of your batting pieces closely together, apply the Batting Seam Tape over the seam, then fuse it to the batting using a steam iron with a metal plate. The fused-together pieces can be easily quilted through and I was able to use up all my scraps.

OK that is an awesome product! I have bags full of left over but sizable chunks of batting with no idea how to use them...but not wanting to throw them away! Might have to chcck this one out!by Amanda - VintageDutchGirl on 08 June 2011 at 10:55 a.m.
Doesn't the iron melt the polyester batting? I have a lot of leftover pieces.by Ruthe N on 03 June 2011 at 11:35 a.m.
