Batting question
How many can I piece together?

So yesterday I did a dumb thing. I have a 45x72 quilt, and thought instead of waiting to order or purchase more batting, I would just use two crib sized. Two was going to be way too large, so I needed to cut one down a bit. I cut in the wrong direction, and now would have to piece the batting in three places!
Is this a problem, or have any of you done this? I know I can put two pieces of batting together, but is more okay?

Mot a problem! I piece multiple ones sometimes and it doesn't show. Same kinds together and same sides up!

I piece it all the time and do not have a problem. I use the multi-zig zag stitch to sew them together.

I used lightweight fusible interfacing to piece together scrap batting in my last quilting project. Worked like a charm and you cannot tell at all once it's been quilted. Just cut it into strips and iron over the intersection to hold the pieces together (continuously without gaps) and make sure that somehow you get some quilting in that area for extra hold.

I could sew it together, or use interfacing strips. Knowing me, I'll sew it.
Do you cut yours in a wavy shape, or just straight? I saw in a Craftsy class on machine quilting, to cut the two layers you are joining in a wavy shape before butting them together.

You can also peel each side open and sort of weave them together and then stitch. Lower your foot pressure so you don't compress the area.
