Does anyone use an edge joining foot to " abut-piece" batting leftovers for new use?

Any issues when quilting the " salvaged" batting?

I'm cheap and looking to "optimize" scraps.

Thx!

I definitely use the edge joining foot to join pieces of batting but not more than 2 pieces in an item. Usually for runners I will use up my scraps. I only use warm and natural so it is needle punched batting. As long as the area joined won't get a lot of pull on it, it should be fine. I figure by the time I quilt an item there is so much stabilization there could never be a problem. Make sure your edges are really even before joining so you do not have a lump or divot from the outside.

I just lay mine next to each other unless it is a large piece. If it's large I actually hand stitch them together with big 2" crossing stitches. Machine stitching would flatten them. They actually sell a product now to iron on them to make them one piece. I'd think you could do the same with a thin iron on interfacing.

Thanks, for all the great info!

I've tried the iron-on tricot taping and it's not to my liking: shows through light colored fabrics, not great to work with.

The edge joining foot should arrive on Tues....:D

I've used the edge-joining foot to sew pieces of batting together and it works very well. I just make sure the pieces of batting are the same type and thickness. I use a wide zig-zag and a long stitch length so the edges don't get mashed down flatter than the rest of the batting. I wouldn't use this for a whole-cloth quilt or one with very large plain blocks, as the joined edges might show through as a ridge. Since I make mostly scrappy quilts, without many large, plain sections, it isn't a problem. I'm not cheap......I just like to save money when I can and hate to throw anything away.

Another use for the edge joining foot is stitching in the ditch quilting. The foot's rudder tracks in the seam, and one can adjust the needle position for perfect quilting.
