    just remember the fusible on the tape doesn't last. you must quilt over that seam well or just go ahead and zig zag it together instead of fusing.

    All those products are fine, but I'd rather spend money on fabric. I simply butt the edges of batting scraps together and hand stitch, using a very large whip stitch. The actual quilting holds the pieces in place permanently. I've been doing this for nearly 30 years and never have had any problems with separation.

    I Zig Zag them together , just butting the edges together and a large zig zag stitch. It is fast and easy . I figure the last thing I need is another quilting notion, when thread works !

    I have pieced pieces of poly batting (all I use) to make a double size batting. Once it is quilted no one is the wiser. I also save thin width pieces for when I need to add to another large piece. I have a great big bag of scraps.

    Ditto . . . I use a 3-step zig-zag stitch. Works great, easy, quick! I can barely tell where they are butted together.

    I've pieced large pieces together with just a hand running stitch with very little overlap. I bought the actual bonding tape but have yet to try it. I think trying to stitch it on the machine would compact and hang up on the feed dogs or even the sewing foot. I bought the tape to try it on Warm and Natural because you can feel a lump if you overlap it too much when hand sewing.

    I zigzag the pieces together and have not had any trouble over the years.
    A bed without a quilt is like the night sky without stars.

    Thanks every one. I think I am going to try the interfacing since I have some on hand. Thanks again

    I hand stitch mine. I tried a zigzag on a polyester batt and it distorted the seam.
