|I pin and trim and as I go I turn the quilt on the table to get to the next section.|
The quilt top measures 6 1/2' by 7 1/2' so it is nice and big but it will be awkward to work on because of the size. I start by lining up the backing on the corner of my dinning room table with all of the leaves in. With Brian's help we laid the batting on top lining up the starting corner and sides. It was much easier with a little help! Next we placed the pieced top on the batting forming the three layers of the quilt.
|The new long straight pins did make this go with more ease.|
|Honking big gaudy basting stitches!|
|The basting is done at about a 6" interval in a rectangular spiral pattern from the outside in.|
