Using HEAT Press Batting Together™:

  • Iron Settings are Most Important when applying tape.  Irons with Teflon plates can use wool setting  to fuse tape. Irons without a teflon plate use the new instructions below.
  • Remove Plastic wrapping
  • Test your iron with tape and batting/wadding
Instructions for Irons with the Steel Plates:

* 100% polyester batting... low setting.. (high synthetic) and use and up and down motion until the glue is set. You can use a low shot of steam to finish the fusible process holding the iron above the tape. If necessary use a pressing cloth over the tape.

* Test all synthetic mixed  battings  ~ usually a low wool works setting works well.

 You may find that the batting/wadding looks flat after application but when it cools  the batting/wadding is fluffy again.

With a large quilt batting 93" (236.2cm) and adding more width, I use weights on either side of the batting to hold it in place.

Simply lay tape over cut edges and slide the iron over the tape without any pressure – “smooth out the tape” with the heat of the iron.
 
The batting tape needs only be applied to one side of the batting. It holds through washings and dry cleanings. It doesn’t gum up the needles and can be stitched by hand or by any machine.  With a large quilt batting 93” and adding more width, I use weights on either side of the batting to hold it in place while applying the tape.
