I have a piece of fusible batting cut for a quilt.  I need to add about an inch of batting on the long side.  The fusible batting tape will not work.

Hi Soot - I've only had to add to my batting once.  I did a hatch stitch to combine the piece. I did it by hand but I suppose you could to it on a machine with a very wide stitch. I did a curve on it so there wasn't a straight line that might not be as sturdy. Check out some you tube tutorials also. There are always many tutorials on almost any quilting subject.

Hi soot, I always place the added piece on top of the main piece of batting then use my rotary cutter to make long wavy curves at the same time, that way they match up perfect.  Then I thread a needle and whip stitch them together, that should hold the patting together until you  can get it where you want it, then you can fuse it like normal.
