Piecing Batting Scraps with Seam Tape

Have you seen this stuff?

I got a sample from Pellon a few months back and had a chance to use it this morning.

It’s really quite handy!

I pieced together some batting scraps to sandwich a mini quilt and took some pics to share with you.

All you need is the tape, scissors, batting scraps and a hot iron.

Trim the edges of your scraps so they can nest as flush as possible next to each other.

Cut a piece of tape to fit the seam and iron it in place.

Flip and repeat for the backside and that’s it!

The packaging says it’s safe for quilting once you’re done as well as machine washable and dryer safe.

I’ll let you know how that goes when I finish my mini.

You can find it at Pellon and JoAnn’s.  Amazon also has it in black.

I’m a hoarder of all scraps, so I’m glad to have a quick way to put the batting ones to use!

farmquilter - Is it safe to use on all batting types? Poly or 80/20? Looks quite a bit faster than sewing the batting together!

LindseyR - It’s 100% polyester, so I’d assume it’s safe for poly battings too. It doesn’t list restrictions. It was definitely speedy!

Cristin - I didn’t know such a product existed! To piece smaller chunks of batting I just trim so each side is super straight then zig-zag stitch together. I may have to give this a try though! Thanks for sharing!

Flying Blind - Ooh that would make my Frankenstein-wadding way neater!

Charity Reesor - Cool!!!

Mary - With poly batting you have to be careful not to melt the batting with your iron – use a lower setting. Mary

Nicola - I use a similar product – it’s brilliant!! Quilts and washes well – I will never ever join wadding together with zig-zag stitches now – this is so much quicker, neater and flatter!!
