Quilt Batting Tip with Edgestitch Foot #10
The Edgestitch foot #10/#10C/#10D is another favorite foot in my toolbox. This foot is available in three versions, Edgestitch foot #10 for maximum 5mm stitch width models, Edgestitch foot #10C for maximum 9mm stitch width models, and Edgestitch foot #10D for Dual Feed models. The center blade is engineered to help you as a guide and is shorter than that of the Blindstitch foot #5 to allow greater maneuverability when stitching curved edges, and allows for more contact with the fabric.
There are many different ways to use this foot besides edgestitching (like stitch-in-the-ditch, understitching, attaching ribbon and trim, and stitching narrow hems) but I love how easy this foot makes joining smaller batting scraps with end-to-end seams to use in larger projects. Watch the video below to see exactly how I use Edgestitch foot #10 to use up smaller batting pieces!
Batting Tip: join batting pieces with the same side up. If I can identify the scrim side of the batting, this is the side I face up to join pieces together. Read this fantastic tip from Laura Wasilowski on Determining the Scrim Side of Batting. And try to use similar thread content to match the content of your batting (use cotton thread with cotton batting, polyester thread with polyester batting).

I use that foot to join batting, but the batting gathers no matter how I join it. It gathers worse with poly batting. Any idea what causes that? The last time I needed to use some, I whip stitched the batting together. Time consuming and not fun. Thanks for a reply.
