  • Re: How I baste/sandwich my quilts

    I just did two crib quilts and it was great -- amazing how it stayed together! Only problems: fumes, and the floor got a little sticky where the spray hit it (despite my trying to be careful with the spray). Time and a little water on a sponge fixed the two problems right away. Wendy

    Iron and pin method? I haven't heard of that (or is that when you use the safety pins?) I've always thrown the quilt on the floor and then attacked it with the needle and thread. I'd love to hear about other methods of basting for hand quilters.
