ONLY ONCE did I do hand, diagonal stitching (big honkin' stitches) to join the batting together.  TOOK ME FOREVER and I worried about the stitches holding together through the quilting process.

I have overlapped the two and zig-zagged.  Didn't notice as being a problem when I quilted it.  I have also used the iron on, ony I made my own of strips of light iron on interfacing.  Both worked.

I have yards and yards of narrow fusible left from the tshirt quilts. I should bring some for the donation table if i get to go to az next year.

Thanks, everyone for some excellent suggestions.  I never thought about using strips of fusible interfacing to join batting pieces!  I've been to Joann's already today with coupons in my hot little hand, but all their Olfa stuff and quilting notions are on sale for 40% off.  I didn't get to use my coupons, but the prices on what I wanted were very good!  And I did buy some of the fusible strips for joining batting. $6 for 10 yards is pretty good, in my estimation.

Thank you all!
