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.

Hi Flojo,

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.

Flojo,

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!
