I counted up the unquilted tops I have lurking in my cupboard. I hang them on hangers amongst my clothes so they are almost hidden, thereby not bothering me with their finish me demands. 2 baby quilts. 2 lap sized quilts that I dislike. 2 bigger quilts that I have booked in to get longarmed. And 2 that I have given myself a stern talking to about, and am planning to quilt over the holidays. Here is quilt #1:
I have a bit of an unconventional approach to basting *call it indecisive if you must*. I use basting spray - not too thoroughly mind, and pins, also not too thoroughly. I'm not sure how or why I have developed this approach but it seems to work well enough.
I baste on the carpet using a sophisticated pin-the-backing-to-the-carpet technique.
The floor space in my wee dwelling is not huge. I'm not complaining - I am grateful that I can live comfortably when lots of people aren't as fortunate, but as far as basting goes, it does sometimes feel like I'm playing solo Twister. I think this could be why I have a few too many unfinished quilt tops in my cupboard. Well that's my story anyway and I'm sticking to it!
