Adding Batting to Wavy Quilt Borders

Recommended Posts

Hi, all, has anyone ever added extra batting underneath parts of a quilt on the frame because, no matter what. it won't steam or lay flat?  If so, do you use batting tape or just lay it in there?  I get fooled sometimes when I lay a top out as to how it will behave at the borders.

Yes. I have done this with very friendly quilts. :)

Hi Bonnie,  I use Dream Puff most of the time.  I just place it where the fullness is.  I have placed it the length of the border when I had a big problem, but not often.  I pin it down also when I have a very long place to work out.  Really, its not hard to do at all.  Good luck.
