|Kitty wants to know WTH it is|
Not that I run out of batting ever (since I purchase it by the 40-yard roll), but I hate to waste the trimmings. Maybe it's due the teachings of my frugal grandmother. (That's why scrap bin is full to overflowing!)
When I have a number of trimmings saved up, I make Frankenbatting. It's quite simple, really. First, set your machine to a nice wide, not too tight zig-zag.
Then, butt two pieces of batting up against each other and straddle the line where they meet.
|I've pulled them apart a bit here so you can see what I mean.|
You won't want to see any space between as you're sewing.
Keep adding until you have a piece large enough for, say, a baby quilt.
|See the wrinkly lines? Those are my seams!|
Easy, peasy, right? It's perfectly usable and stable, doubly so once you've quilted your sandwich. The seams will not affect the look of your quilt.
And, just to keep it real, here's the view juuuuust to the right of the batting.
|What a mess!|
Happy Friday and have a lovely weekend!
