I typically overlap two pieces just slightly and do a wavy cut with my rotary blade then remove the cuttings and but the fresh edges up against each other and feed thru my machine with a wide zig-zag stitch..... I learned the hard way once that I should always use WHITE thread or cream to match the batting b/c you never know where that area will appear in the quilt and backing areas and you certainly don't want red zig-zag thread showing thru a white patch. :/
But no worries about thread color - or zig-zaging anymore!!!!!!!!!! Have you heard of HEAT Press Batting Together?? Click over to to see a youTube on it - looks awesome doesn't it?
Maybe you have already heard of it, b/c recently Jo's Country Junction posted a review of the product and also Sponsored a Giveaway......and yesterday in my inbox I found an email from Jo announcing I was one of her winners! Weee! :)
Thanks so much Jo's Country Junction!!!!! ;) I can't wait to get it and give it a try!
Love from Texas!
