So I was upstairs in the quilting loft this morning. All these batting scraps. I just keep piecing them together in strips and then adding 1 strip to the left side of a batting piece, and one to the top. This means that the strips get bigger, and more usable–over time, anyway.
I don’t overlap them when I piece, I use a stitch that looks like a zig zag, but it takes 3 stitches for each zig, and 3 for each zag. Keeps it from bunching the batting together. I also have my personal standards–I try to never have more than 3 seams in the batting in a quilt. And if it is an all white quilt, I won’t piece the batting at all–it always seems to show through then.
I don’t know why some people feel it is inappropriate to piece batting. After all, quilters are supposed to use up their scraps, aren’t they?
And I am wondering how many posts I can make before someone is actually reading my blog.
