    spray baste to the rescue - trim the existing batting and measure the area, then cut a new piece of batting and spray away. follow the directions
    If life gives you lemons, make a margarita.

They have always enjoyed laying in my sewing room while I sew or quilt, but I have never had an issue with them until now. So, now what do I do with the batting already loaded on the quilt and on my long arm? The hole is about 12" around and jagged/stretched.
    Time for hand stitching for repair,as for the dog every time it jumps up to greet you,barely step on his back paws while he is in the up.I was told that for my Australian Shepherd and it work like a charm.Don't hurt that much just lightly step on them.He or She will get the message pretty quick.

    How about shooting the dog? Just kidding. I think I would cut out the circle and iron on a bigger piece to patch it.

    I have had stitched the edges back together and it worked out fine. My DGD caught her foot in the batting one time when I was working on a quilt.

    I have a dog that has literally destroyed a couch, a door (yes, an actual hanging door!), TWO recliners and numerous small things. He's one of "those" dogs! But, he's so doggone cute, and I knew what I was getting into, so I couldn't be mad. He's a boxer and all this was done before he was one. Boxers are bad to chew when they are young, and this guy didn't get training like he should.

    He got into a bag of batting I had that fit the quilt top perfectly, and ate a hole in it, literally ate, I never found the piece! I did what others are saying, cut a square, used basting spray and once quilted it was fine.

    I still have to be careful with him. He's twice had to have things removed that he's swallowed! He will eat literally anything. Just today , I took a pop can from him, happily chewing away in the driveway.

    I also do agree with this method!

    You can make the patch blend in well if you leave the hole edges thinned out - wispy like. Then cut your patch bigger than the hole and pull the edges so they fray wispy like too. Lay the thinned edges overtop of each other. Then you won't have a visible or feel a bulge where the patch is.
    I used to be "hot", now it's just "hot flashes!"

    The new fusible tape to fix that problem works well. You'll need two people: one to hold a backing support while another irons the fusible in place. Should do the trick.
