Basting on a table
I lay out the 3 layers, and use large clips to attach to the edges of the table, with the centre on the table and the rest of the quilt falling over the edges.
Sometimes I pin baste if i am machine quilting, and sometimes I thread baste, especially if I am hand quilting. I had to thread baste this one as all my pins are already used in another quilt.
For the tacking I use a large doll making needle and yarn used for crochet. It is strong and flexible, and cheap! I can usually pick it up at the charity shops or garage sales.
What do you think of the backing fabric?? Pretty bright, eh?
