"What do you do with those strips of batting leftover after you've trimmed down your quilt after quilting? I have even more of those than some people as I tend to buy my batting bigger than the quilts I end up making! So I have learned to join my batting pieces together so I can reuse those leftovers in other quilts, wall hangings or any other qulted project. In my post you will find a Video Tutorial plus written instructions for how to join your leftover batting. Happy Quilting!"

Why You'll Love This Quilt

As quilting enthusiasts ourselves, we understand the struggle of figuring out what to do with leftover batting scraps. That's why we are excited to share with you the top 3 reasons why you should consider joining your leftover batting pieces:

1. Resourcefulness: By joining your batting scraps together, you are making the most out of every piece of batting you have. Instead of letting those leftover strips go to waste, you can repurpose them for future quilting projects. This not only saves you money in the long run, but it also reduces waste and promotes sustainability in your quilting practice.

2. Customizable Size: Sometimes you may have batting pieces that are too small for a full quilt, but by joining them together, you can create a custom-sized batting that fits your project perfectly. Whether you're making a wall hanging, table runner, or smaller quilt, joining your batting scraps allows you to tailor the size to your specific needs without having to purchase new batting each time.

3. Improved Stability: Joining your batting scraps together creates a seamless and stable batting layer for your quilting projects. This helps prevent shifting and bunching during the quilting process, resulting in a more professional and polished finished product. Additionally, by layering multiple pieces of batting, you can enhance the loft and overall quality of your quilt, giving it a more luxurious and cushiony feel.

So why let those leftover batting scraps collect dust in a corner when you can transform them into something useful and beautiful? Follow our tutorial for joining leftover batting scraps and start reaping the benefits of resourcefulness, customization, and stability in your quilting endeavors. Happy quilting!
