Shooting Star. That is what I'm going to call this quilt. If I ever make another 4 inch sawtooth star again... you get the picture!
Excitement! I finished the quilt top, pieced the back and it is ready to be basted. This quilt is big, seriously big. It is 90 by 94 inches. There is no floor space here big enough to lay it out, without moving furniture.
Basting is harder for me than quilting. How to get 3 large, unwieldy pieces together without creases , folds or puckers. Yikes! I've tried pinning quilts, I've tried basting spray - both horizontal and vertical. Recently I bought a tagging gun, you know, the plastic thread that holds a price tag to a garment. All these things are problems: how to lay out the quilt sandwich, how to join it together, how to deal with my aching back and knees.
This time I have taken it to the longarmer to be basted. Then I'll be able to have some fun quilting this monster ! Perhaps that is my basting answer. What do you do???
