    Heat press batting tape v. fusible interfacing

    Has anyone tried the heat press batting tape to join batting together? Does it work any better than plain old fusible interfacing? I'm thinking $.

    I don't know...I like the concept but have never used it (yet)...

    I have tried it and like it. I think it is just stitch witchery or something like that cut in wider strips. Fusible interfacing is just as good IMO.

    I've only used fusible interfacing, and it works great.

    I very carefully layer the two pieces of batt, then cut a curvy line, remove the small pieces. Then I just quilt away. I've never had a problem without permanently bonding the pieces, this is inexpensive, and I've found it works well, at least IMO

    the only difference between the tape & fusable interfacing is the convienience---the tape is in a strip- the interfacing comes in yards you have to cut---they are the same as far as function-
    the tape costs a little more because you are paying for the convienience of it's form.
    just like purchasing pre-cuts instead of yardage....you pay a little more for convienience.

    I do this also, except I stitch the two pieces of batting together with a very wide zigzag. It has worked perfectly well for me as it only takes a little thread. And it probably doesn't take any more time than joining the two pieces with a fusible.

    I use the tape. It's more convenient and saves time. I don't fuse all the length of batting. Just every six inches or so.
    Got fabric?
