    How do you sew batting together to make larger pieces? I would like to hear from those who have been successful. Thanks.

    I always use Warm and Natural.... I lay a piece down & overlap another piece..... then I use my serpentine or another zig zag type of stitching to join up the pieces.... then I trim out the extra lumps....and use as one piece of batting. BUT....I have also used another method where I lay the batting pieces overlapping & then do a gentle swerve cut with my rotary cutter.....I take this to the machine & zig zag it.

    I have an edge joining foot for my machine; I butt them up together and zig zag them. You might want to experiment with your stitch length and width to see what works best.

    I put the pieces together, cut along the join with a rotary cutter, then hand stitch them together using a large hem stitch.

    Next time I'll try the machine, though.

    I butt them next to eachother---then use the lightweight fusible interfacing. I cut long strips and it is EASY.
