    Does anyone know where to buy this? It was mentioned with a link to a video, but didn't say where to get it. My LQS doesn't have it & I'm finishing up the "Stitcher's Garden" BOM & we have to add batting strips before we layer & quilt it. The individual blocks were prequilted, but not the block borders!
    This would make my life so much easier!
    Many thanks for any & all help!

    I personally just overlap my batting edges by about 1/4 inch & zizgag stitch them together. Once the quilt is sandwiched & quilted, you'll never know!

    I won a roll of this as a door prize at our quilt show but haven't tried it yet.

    I saw this at a show too but it was pricey for a small roll. I figure any leftover piece of Steam a seam would work too. Using up all of our batting scraps is a great idea.

    I have it, tried it, liked it, quilted on a quilting machine with no problems, washed the quilt and don't see any problems. Can't tell you if it'll last for the lifetime of the quilt though.

    I butt my sides together and do an edge joining stitch. No need to overlap the edges and create bulk.

    I but the edges together and do the wides/longest zig zag stitch I can do the length of the batting! It doesn't create bulk, and it holds it together well. When you are done with the quilt you can not even see the seam. I try not to put more than two pieces together to make a quilt, but wallhangings I have been known to put a few small pieces together to make one.

    Here is a Google search I did for it. I bought mine from Gruber's Quilt shop in St Cloud, MN. (I had to search their site to find the name! lol)
    It's called Heat Press Batting Together
    (pretty original name, isn't it? :lol: )

    I just use a wide, long zigzag stitch on my machine to join pieces together. It works fine.

    To me this sounds like one of those unnecessary products that are sold to new quilters who don't know any better.

    I've tried butting and zig-zagging batting together, but my batting stretched and it didn't work. Could one of you who has had luck with it please let me know the secret?

    I can tell you that I tested it on a small quilt I was working on and it went through the washer and dryer twice. I didn't have any trouble machine quilting through it, no gummy needle. I couldn't tell where it was after washing and drying it either. It didn't roll up, it didn't flatten anything. I used it on all cotton batting so am not sure about the poly batting but the instruction sheet tells you a lot about it.

    I just saw this on youtube..... Interesting and I have a feeling that it just may hold up better than stitching pieces together. If I can find it I'm gonna' grab some and try it...

    I just but them together, no over-lapping, and do wide long zigzag. Can't even tell the join is there when quilt is quilted.

    Nancy's Notions has it in the early summer catalog @$12.99 for 2 - 10 yard rolls. I've been going to order some but still haven't gotten around to it. I've got a lot of batting pieces & I never have very good luck with zigzagging mine together so if this works I'll be able to use up a lot of my misc. pieces.

    This is the stuff. I bought some at the Long Beach Quilt Show. Can't wait to use it. Much better than zig-zagging batting together!

    I make my own strips from lightweight fusible interfacing. Once the quilt is quilted, it will stay in place for sure. I've never had a problem with this method. I am guessing that the product on the roll is convenient because they did the cutting, but I can get interfacing so cheap, especially when JoAnns has it on sale.

    Justm trim edges straight, butt the edges together and do the longest, widest zig zag you can. IOt is perfect, and far cheaper than the tape.
