    I line the 2 pieces side by side (not overlaping) and zigzag them together. Hope this helps.

    Hi Loris,

    You can also butt two pieces together (put them side by side), take a little strip of light fusible interfacing, lay it over the pieces you're joining, iron it on to join them!

    Hmm - I haven't tried that method yet, but will the next time I need to piece batting. I've always just zig-zagged.

    I have joined my wadding/batting by sewing zig zag at the widest on my Janome dc3050 and it worked fine

    Once again thanks to everyone.
