Leftover strips of batting lying around? Instead of stitching them together to create one large piece to use for a quilt, use a light iron-on interfacing. Cut 1″ strips of interfacing, lie the batting pieces side by side, and iron on the interfacing over the seam. No time-consuming stitching required, and you’ll have a piece of batting just the right size for your next project!
