Fusible tape makes finishing your quilt a snap! When you want to add batting to your quilt, try batting seam tape to fuse together batting scraps for a flawless finish. It's so easy to use fusible batting tape, simply iron it on and sew! And try quilting fusible tape to help make binding easy. Fuse it on right before you stitch for a simple, strong, finish.
Quilting fusible tape is a secret weapon designed especially for sewists. It’s used for many things from piecing together batting scraps to adding applique designs and even to attach binding. It’s absolutely magical!
When we’re talking about batting tape for quilting, it helps you fuse together those leftover scraps of leftover batting and guess what? Nobody will ever know.
Here’s how to use fusible batting tape: Take your larger pieces of batting left over from other projects and combine them into full sized batting to save you money. Align extra pieces of batting together and connect them with fusible batting tape using your iron. Simply press the quilt batting tape on with a hot iron and it will stick to the batting permanently.
And as a side note, don’t try using batting seam tape with 100% polyester batting as it will melt! Only connect cotton batting with fusible batting seam tape. Try not to use more than three seams to create your pieced batting and don’t worry if the edges aren’t completely straight, no one will be the wiser once it’s all quilted!

Take your Clover fusible bias tape maker, insert the fusible web in the upper groove, then insert your binding fabric in the lower groove.
