Basting away

Tried a new method for basting that I saw on my friend Frieda's blog.   I secure down the 3 layers on a large piece of sewing cardboard using binder clips.  This worked really well!!!  (Watching Frozen on my iPad while I worked was an added bonus!)

I was able to put it up on my kitchen island.  Nothing slipped around.  No tape to mess with.  And I didn't have to crawl all over the floor!

I used a mix of bent safety pins and straight pins with my pinmors.   Didn't quite have enough but I think it will work.

This is my Dr Who quilt.  Had a little fun with this Cyberman - he doesn't look too scary in this photo, does he?

Rest assured, he is as menacing as ever!

Quilting this quilt top is my ALYOF goal for April - I'll be linking up here!   The blocks were all paper pieced and came from the Dr Who paper piecing quilt along.

Happy Stitching!

  1. I'm glad the binder clip thing worked for you. Definitely makes it easier to be able to sit and pin-baste...

    This is going to be a fab quilt... looking forward to seeing how you quilt it!



Leave a stitch...
