Giveaway from Heat Press Batting Together
Some time ago, I told you all about Heat Press Batting Together…I am so in love with it, I wanted to tell you about it again.
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.
I had questions and comments asking could I sew through it? Could you feel it in the quilt after it was quilted? I have use two rolls now and feel I can honestly answer your those questions.
You can EASILY sew through it. I didn’t notice any difference with or without the product as I was quilting. After the quilt was quilted, I could not feel the product in the quilt…so I think the product is a WIN-WIN all the way around. I have used it in five different quilts now and can’t find a single bad thing to say about it.
10 yards comes 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. Of course if you are piecing batting together for a baby quilt, you’d use much less and the cost would be less as well.
I am now completely converted and will be using “Heat Press Batting Together” all the time. I had run out and needed to piece some batting scraps together…UGH. I ended up sewing them together with my machine and ended up with a wavy mess that I had to rip out. I’m not doing that anymore.
I was going to plan a trip to the nearest quilt shop, which is an hour away, that handles the product but after checking it out I found out that I can order it right from the company so no more worrying driving an hour and then being tempted by fabric.
After a visit to the company website I saw that the product can even be used by long armers and can be used even if you already have your project loaded in the machine. I could have used that information a quilt or two ago. I had one piece of batting that I thought was long enough but a few inches from the edge, I realized I had loaded the batting in the wrong directions. I had to hand stitch a piece of batting in place.
Take some time and check out their site for more information and there is even a video on their product Heat Press Batting Together. I am guessing you’ll be like me and think you can live without find out it, then go back to the old way of sewing batting together and realize the Heat Press Batting Together is a must.
I loved the product so much that I contacted Heat Press Batting Together and asked if they would be willing to give some away and they said yes! TWO lucky readers will each win a roll. Here’s what you need to do….
