    batting question

    When putting batting in a quilt, if the size is not full size, but larger than crib size, can two crib size battings be joined together and used?
    I don't know if I'm making sense here, but I did a quilt top that is larger than a crib size batting, but much smaller than a full size batting. I hate to waste so much full size batting when 2 crib sizes would be the right size, can I just join the crib sizes together and use them, since no one will be seeing inside the quilt, but how do I join them together?
    Any help is appreciated. I've only been quilting a year.

    Yes, you absolutely can join whatever pieces you want, including scraps. You can either lay the two pieces out and zig zag them together, or they sell an iron on tape that it made for this. When I'm zig zagging, I use the longest stitch possible, and the widest stitch. Works great and saves waste. Good luck!

      Yes, you can join batting together. There is a tape, kind of a fusible you can use. You can use a fancy joining stitch on your machine. Or you can quickly hand stitch them together. Once you quilt over it all, it will hold together.

        I guess I was a slow typist!

            Yes, I zigzag batting together for a lot of projects...I have also used the batting iron on tape...

              If you decide to sew battings together, make sure you butt the edges together rather than overlapping them, which produces a ridge after your piece is quilted. Just align the edges side by side and stitch or fuse.
