    to this..

    i still have a stack in my sewing room..but if i don't take care of this mess, i will continue to go buy batting,instead of using up what i have..

    the narrow ones,scarfs for the homeless shelter,just put flannel on front and back. (stitch and flip style)

    mug rugs and small projects, and baby quilts..

    just zig zag them together..

    Wow, you are so organized! So clever to add the measurements! Thanks for the idea! It's so easy to do this after every project.

    the width measurements are just so i know what i need to get it to a certain size...

    as for the lengths,well, i can easily join them together as i need them for the length.

    i got one crib size finished already. 45" x 60". :thumbup:

    i use the SITD foot..and a zig zag.

    I always piece my batting scraps together and use them for smaller projects. I can't afford to waste them.

    Great ideas, I see you had some help flattening that piece on your bed. Question: how wide do you generally make the scarves?

    Now I know what to do with those containers of batting scraps I won't give up. The LQS is selling bags of batting scraps too so if mine don't make the size I need, I'll just go get some of hers. Great idea

    Thank you tons for sharing. I need to get started doing this. I have been much better at using the fusible tape to put smaller batting pieces together....fast and easy.

    haven't tried the tape, if Joanns was to sell it and i could use a coupon,i may try it..but never had a problem with the way i do it..the bigger pieces i had, i squared them up,and put them back away, for table toppers, or other projects.i got a lot done with the batting yesterday..so happy!

    Okay, now you have given me something else I need to do "in there"! Being a longarm quilter, I always have a strip left over at the end (if I am lucky) and the customer never wants it. I pile it in a corner and now my corner is about 6 feet high.
    As for those times when there isn't enough batting at the end of a quilt...the tape works great! I grab a slice of batting from my corner and fuse two together....not sure how I made it before the fusing tape...it was a nightmare. I bought a cordless steam iron and that has also made fusing the tape to the batting a real breeze.
    I love organization, and I love organized people....I just wish I were one!
