Default Heat Press batting tape

I would love to use up some of my large leftover pieces of batting. I save the smaller pieces to make practice sandwiches, but has anyone tried the HeatPress tape that fuses two pieces together (side by side)? I use Hobbs 80/20. I was thinking of taping two pieces length wise for a baby quilt. Thanks for your input!

i think it must be sewn on well though because it might not be permanent. read the directions. i've used it myself and not had any problems.

I just do a hand tailor stitch to hold them together. If you are quilting reasonably well, it stays put. I hand quilt and don't NEED any added bulk to stitch through.

Haven't used the tape because I just butt the two pieces together and zigzag stitch them together. It doesn't look pretty but once it is in a quilt you will never know the seam was there.

I butt the pieces together and stitch with a wide zig-zag. Works great!

I've used it frequently. It seems to stay put once pressed together, although it can be pulled apart before quilting the quilt.

I have used it. The problem I have is I forget which side is the fusible and sometimes the iron is too hot. It does stay put

I use it. I don't like sewing batting.
