Basting my quilts is the least favorite part of making a quilt for me. I have tried pin basting and spray basting. I really like Sarah's Tutorial on Maching Quilting 101. She shows how to spray baste. I have used this method quilt successfully, however, the spray is expensive and it is difficult to find the floor space to baste a large quilt. It is also pretty hard on the body!
My two most recent quilts ( I will post pictures later today) were pin basted. I was reminded how I don't like pin basting. It is easy to baste the quilt, but difficult to quilt. I broke a couple of needles.
For my next quilt, I am considering trying Sharon Schamber's hand basting method. The links to her tutorials are below. Let me know what you think. Has anyone tried this method?
