    Does anyone know where to buy this? It was mentioned with a link to a video, but didn't say where to get it. My LQS doesn't have it & I'm finishing up the "Stitcher's Garden" BOM & we have to add batting strips before we layer & quilt it. The individual blocks were prequilted, but not the block borders!
    This would make my life so much easier!
    Many thanks for any & all help!

    Our LQS has it, great product. She's got a website if you want me to PM it to you. Just let me know.

    I personally just overlap my batting edges by about 1/4 inch & zizgag stitch them together. Once the quilt is sandwiched & quilted, you'll never know!

    I won a roll of this as a door prize at our quilt show but haven't tried it yet.

    I saw this at a show too but it was pricey for a small roll. I figure any leftover piece of Steam a seam would work too. Using up all of our batting scraps is a great idea.

    I have it, tried it, liked it, quilted on a quilting machine with no problems, washed the quilt and don't see any problems. Can't tell you if it'll last for the lifetime of the quilt though.

    I butt my sides together and do an edge joining stitch. No need to overlap the edges and create bulk.

    I but the edges together and do the wides/longest zig zag stitch I can do the length of the batting! It doesn't create bulk, and it holds it together well. When you are done with the quilt you can not even see the seam. I try not to put more than two pieces together to make a quilt, but wallhangings I have been known to put a few small pieces together to make one.
