What a great idea to place pins in the folds of the quilt top and backing to help line them up... I had such a problem with positioning the fabrics and you may be sure I'll be using your method from now on! Thanks!
Thanks for sharing! Lovely quilts:)
Great tutorial. Thanks for sharing. Very pretty quilts - too!
Thanks for sharing...love your clamps! I use book binder clamps, but these look like they work very well! Beautiful quilts!
Marking the folds with pins is so simple and smart! Great tip! Basting is my least favourite part of quilting.
Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving me a comment! :) Your quilts are beautiful. I am trying to make my first quilt at the moment and it seems to be taking me forever. I am your newest follower!
I love this tip to put pins in the centers. I hope I remember to do this next time I layer a quilt!
Thanks! I will defiantly try this the next time I quilt!
I have never quilted before, but I want to try. I was wondering, is there any reason you shouldn't do the pinning with the whole project spread out on a hard floor? I don't have a big table, and I don't have room in my house for one even if I did. Are there disadvantages to pinning on the floor?
There are many different ways to baste a quilt. The basting tutorial outlined in this post is simply one of them. I like to pin my quilts on tables because it is easier on my knees and back. If you have a hard floor available, you may want to try that method first and see if it works for you.
