    Leftover Climashield

    I have several 14 gal trash bags of Climashield scrapes. Various thickness, lengths, etc...

    I know I could use it cut up as "stuffing" for a pillow or something like that. Can I piece it together some how. I would like to make a 3/4 UQ for use mainly at home.

    I used some partial sheets that I loosely tacked together before putting a shell around it

    Using the "shingle" overlap method could work ... i guess it should work.

    Why not give it a go?

    Sure you could. You'll only be limited by your imagination!

    My experiece with spray adhesives for things that may get near my face is not positive. I do use fabric adhesive to hold little bits together when I am designing a quilting.

    I found basting the batting together easy, sometimes I use big saftey pins to keep the parts together while I am basting. On my synthetic quilts I sometimes add a layer over my hips and left shoulder for extra warmth.

    You do not want your needle to get gummy ( wipe with alcohol wipes every so often). Plus you do not want stifness in odd places.
