Has anyone used this tape? Is it worth the $8. for ten yards? I just read about it in my new Quiltmaker magazine. heatpressbattingtogether.com.

Never heard of it, so I've never used it. I always whip stitch pieces together and don't have a problem.

I'm using this on my quilt right now. I really like it. It really beats sewing the batting together.

i won a roll and used it. it's fine but won't last forever. you must quilt the areas you fuse well when quilting the quilt or they will come undone. i've gone back to hand stitching pieces of batting together just to be sure it stays that way.

I like it a lot, too. It's made from the same stuff as the knit fusible interfacing I used when I made garments years ago. In fact, I've got a bunch of that in a box that I'm going to cut into strips and use to join batting pieces.

Me, too. I use the tape or leftover interfacing. Both work well for me.
