    I'm ready to put my 'sandwich' together. How do I get the wrinkles out of the batting? I have my bottom on the table and unrolled the batting (polyester) over it and it is full of wrinkles. I don't think my grandson will care but I think there must be a way. I've god over it several time with my hands and am letting it lay spread out.

    I usually let my batting "relax" outside the bag for 24 hours or more. Just spread it on a bed or some out of the way place and let it sit.

    I usually use blue painters tape and tape my backing down to table, floor, whatever, then tape my batting down around the edges this pulls put the folds, then put my top on & tape it. Last step is baste or safety pens all over the quilt sandwich. Hope this helps some. You can also press the batting with a cool Iron. A hot one will melt the poly.

    Thanks, I will put it up for now and let it relax then do the taping. I've never noticed it like this before.

    I unroll my batting and put it in the dryer on fluff for about 10 minutes ... that helps to get the wrinkles out.

    I put mine in the dryer for a few minutes if it is really wrinkled.

    Thank you one and all! Put it into the dryer on extra low for 5 minutes. That relaxed it. Never would have thought of it. I'm indebted to the members of this board.
