    I used Shelley's tip for interfacing on my grandson's quilt. It is a stacked coin with white stripping in the middidle. You could not tell I had pieced the batting. It felt great to be able to use up a couple odd sizes of batting.

    Hi Shelley,
    what a great idea and I am really happy to be using it.

    It works really good and so easy.

    Thanks, Lilly.

    my books for quilting in sections, all reccommend piecing battings. You actually cut the batting in sections, on purpose, and later, you join them back together, using the wavy cut method, to camoflage. I like the idea of using the pellon or interfacing, too. Will save me bending over to whipstitch. :D

When you have an available 40% off coupon, you can get yards of this for about $.60 per yard. Great stuff to have around.

    I also use the light weight fusable interfacing as a stabilizer for t-shirt quilts - iron a piece bigger than what your final square will be, then trim shirt and fusable to the correct size.
    Thank you for that! Piecing the batting with stitching is the part of quilting that I HATE, so your suggestion is much appreciated!

    Thanks for that tip. I tried it today for a wall hanging. It works great and so quick. I always have scraps of interfacing.

    I sometimes piece batting to use up offcuts but hadn't heard the fusible interfacing tip before. Sounds great - must try it out next time I need to piece some together
