Using It Up
For my practice piece, I've sewn together some leftover pieces of Hobbs Thermore, my favorite batting. I'll be using a whole piece for my Jane Stickle quilt, but a patchwork piece of batting will be just fine for the tablerunner (see my previous post). It looks a little wonky in the photo, but it will work.
I always use the flat joining seam (#13) on my Bernina when I piece my batting. It leaves a very nice flat seam and is easy to do. Here's a closeup shot...
And, of course, all other batting pieces that are too small get used up as cloths for my Swiffer floor sweeper.
