I Was Only Asking Last Week ...

about what was the best way to baste a quilt.  Whether I should use those bendy safety pins or that spray glue stuff before I quilt my quilt.  Yes I am going to quilt it myself once I have made the top that is.  But I have to clear up my sewing room first so that I can get in there and actually cut so I can sew.

Then I came upon this via my Twitter pal who is also a GREAT designer and person and I love her fabric to pieces.  So who is she you ask?  Well it's BariJ.  Anyway she found this online and I'm sharing it with you because I think it is such an awesome way to baste a quit without any fuss or bother.

What is it you ask?  It's this, and this is Part 1 and the woman who is so clever to do this is Sharon Schamber and I have linked her name to her website because she does all kinds of classes in the USA you lucky people you.  But this one is absolutely amazing.

and here is Part 2 albeit not in the middle of the screen sorry.

I hope you enjoyed this as much as I did.  Now all I have to do is find out where to get these bars from in England and I'll be home and dry and wont have to scramble on the floor which wouldn't be easy that's for sure.
So until next time

  1. Thank You ~ Thank You ~ Thank You! I'm a newbie quilter and this looks like a perfect way to baste!

  2. Thanks, I've seen this before but there are a lot of excellent tips in here--like starching your backing.

  3. Thanks so much for the posting. Can't wait to try the technique after things quiet down for me around here.
    I am a little familiar with the feather basting but have never seen the boards. Makes sense however.

  4. Thank you Patti. That was fantastic to watch. Learned a lot.

  5. If you listen very carefully in the beginning she tells that her husband got the boards at the hardware store. They are possibly wood or plastic trim for use in the house.

  6. Marvelous, what a web site it is! This blog presents helpful data to us, keep it up.
