    To avoid a bump - lay out your pieces ( I use the floor for this) with one slightly overlapping the other. Take your trusty scissors and cut through both pieces - keeping the scissors vertical while doing so. Take out the resulting scraps and - well, then I hand stitch them together with a big basting stitch. I've never had any trouble with stuff shifting. It's also good exercise to crawl around on the floor. Produces a nice bottom line so to speak.

    yep thats what I do now - tried the ready made roll of batting tape which worked very well and then realised it was really just a roll of iron on interfacing

    I used the darning foot, and machine basted the batting.. I like to use all the batting.. I hate to waste.. Ialso tried the wonder under, and used it like the tape.. It worked very well, and wasvery cheap..
