On my last quilt shop visit I bought a new product to try…. Heat Press Batting Together.
I thought I would give you a little review….
The product is designed to help quilters use up scrap pieces of batting. I tried it out using Warm and Natural. To use it I took two pieces of batting. I trimmed the edges to make straight lines. I butted the seams together, put the tape over the top and ironed it down. It worked PERFECTLY. I really liked it.
Typically I have been a person who zig zags my batting scraps together. It seemed no matter how hard I tried, it wasn’t perfectly smooth. This product was WONDERFUL.
10 yards came in a package for $8. Estimating that I making quilts that are about 90 inches, I would need 2.5 to 3″ yards for each quilt. It figures out to be 80 cents a yard or about 2.25 per quilt depending size. I personally think it is worth it.
But…if I ran out, I wouldn’t wait on a project until I got some….I’m not that much of a perfectionist, the quilt shop that carries it is an hour away, and I am not patient. I will however pick up two packs of it next time I am at the quilt shop…then hopefully, I won’t run out! Here’s a link to the company website if you want more information.
