I am tired of stitching batting together, but my bolt of batting is 90" wide and my quilt top is 102", so something must be done. I picked up some Pellon lightweight fusible interfacing, and I'm going to try fusing the batting pieces together. I'm using W&N batting. I will be quilting on my longarm. The plan is to cut 1.5" strips of the interfacing and apply to the batting - but that's as far as I've gotten in the thought process.
I have some questions. Should I cut off the side edges of the batting before using it? Should I put a cloth (damp or otherwise?) over the interfacing (which is laid on top of the seam in the batting) before applying the iron? Should I fuse both sides together? Anything else I should know?
This interfacing was cut off a bolt and didn't come with directions, so I would appreciate advice from anyone who has already done this. TIA
