To start I lay two hunks of batting right over each other - you want about two inches or so to overlap.
Next, You cut through both layers of batting with a curving line - super easy - I slide a mat under the hunks of batting and just use my rotary cutter.
Now you have this perfect line to join your batting - this is what prevents any seam line from appearing on the finished quilt.
Butt those pieces up to each other as close as you can get them - feel free to pull just a tad and stretch them into place - so long as you don't distort the batting or rip a hole.
Then just lay strips of very very light fusible interfacing over the seam line - using a pressing cloth - press to secure seams. Because the fusible is so light and white, it is completely invisible when stitched into a quilt. This is the same extra lite fusible I use to stabilize but prevent bulk for t-shirt quilts.
The finished result is a very flush join that cannot be seen! I love this method! Quick and easy and great results. I just thought I would share as this just works so well for me!! :)
Much has been happening here in my little world, but not much I can share on yet. In any case big things will be happening for us in the near future - and while we have some weighty decisions that have just recently been put before us, the end result will be good no matter what we choose. I am feeling really excited about the next ten years of our life. I think my Husband and I have just been so used to working ourselves crazy with no sight of relief in site - the idea that there may be a payoff for all our hard work is just...amazing. :)
While big ideas and thoughts float around the house I'm still making way on Barbara's quilt. Birthday parties and the busyness of the early month are now over and I can just focus and finishing this up. I say finishing - but I'm only hoping to be working on the center portion of the quilt by the end of the day! LOL The borders will be lovely when finished but boy - they are huge!!! :)
Happy quilting! :)
