I've seen this in one of Keepsake Quilter catalog and was wondering if anyone has tried it. Is it easy to use? Can you quilt through it easly? Does it leave a line that shows on top of the quilt and does it keep the quilt from 'breaking' ?
I have bought some but not used it yet. In the videos I watched everyone said they loved it. My local quilt stor also said it was great.
Flojo, my lqs demonstrated it during a class earlier this year and it looked easy and pretty much invisible. I bought it and like Elizabeth I have not used it so I don't know how it holds up.
The batting tape is awesome. I am a longarm quilter and often clients do not send quilte enough batting, I can actually add the batting to the end of the quilt while it is on my machine, use a dry iron and I am ready to go again. I also have been able to use up larger pieces of batting in smaller quilts without sewing. LOVE IT!
Thanks fellow quilters! Judy Lee, just what I wanted to hear. I have lots of batting scraps to big for place mats and to small for small quilts. Maybe I can put 4 together and have enough for one baby quilt.
I just slightly over lap the pieces and cut it with my rotary cutter so that the edges match, then use a dry iron to press the pieces together. I really thisk the is the best thing to come down the pike in a while!
I love it. I've bought it through Connecting Threads. Don't know if that's cheaper than Keepsake Quilting or not.
Flojo, I purchased my batting tape at a small quilt shop after watching the store owner "tape" batting together for a quilt. I was amazed at how well it worked! After she sandwiched the quilt I couldn't see the seam and I was sold! I have used this on numerous occasions and love it. The $6 I spent has saved my 10 times as much in batting costs. I now always buy king size batting and use almost every square inch of it!
