  • Best way to baste?

    I'm wondering what is the preferred way to baste a quilt. I tried pinning for the first time and it's going very well. I hand quilt and I usually baste with thread but have always hated the time that takes. Are there pitfalls to using pins and how close should they be set?

  • Re: domestic machine quilting, help please

    Does anyone use a tag gun to make their quilt sandwiches? I used one for a long time in drapery making and the first one I ever bought was made for quilters. Is there a good reason not to do that? Perhaps a pain to remove the tags? Claire

  • Re: How I baste/sandwich my quilts

    I use a fu;ll size frame to do my needle and thread basting, or when I do a tied quilt. I posted a picture couple days ago when I was basting for a hand quilting project. Now where did I post that picture? Cheryl, if you're close enough to come over, we'll have a basting party!
