Pinning


On smaller projects I baste with straight pins instead of safety pins...
PS: Rain today.

It must be Christmas in everyone's hearts! Summer Sadie just posted about Christmas fabric and is having a giveaway with it. http://summersadie.wordpress.com/2009/07/06/christmas-in-july/

After reading her post I pulled some fabric to make 2 Christmas throw quilts for wedding gifts. Now I read about it here. Funny!

I would poke myself if I tried this with the pins. LOL!

I should try that- it would certainly be faster. I'd probably hurt myself though.

On small projects I use basting spray. Quick and easy and holds the layers nicely for machine quilting. The bad thing is that it is a bit smelly and must be sprayed outside or in a well ventilated room. I would surely poke myself with straight pins!

What a cute group of Christmas fabrics. Even on smaller ones I still pin baste. I find I poke myself too many times with straight pins.

Definitely a good day to be basting, when it rains. As far as basting, that is one thing I am glad I no longer have to do.

I've never tried this! Doesn't your machine needle sometimes get stuck in the pins? That's trouble I have when leaving the pins in the quilt while sewing.
Bth, I love Kat!
