A few weeks before, Oda May announced the first monthly challenge for the calendar year – Layer Up! This month is all about tackling these quilt tops we’ve been avoiding. My tried and true method is to smooth the layers, protected with masking tape and pin together – AKA pin basting. I’ve friends that are huge fans of fusible batting and basting sprays however I’m somewhat too messy to make those work for me. I have basting many quilts to my floor and/or trousers and/or hands.
Oda May has a few other methods you may want to attempt also – check out this reader question she replied on basting.
My favorite tool for basting is absolutely my Kwik Klip. It saves your fingers when closing a lot of safety pins.
Curved safety pins will also be a must (that small curve makes it much simpler to shut them up through the layers of the quilt sandwich). United Notions includes a huge variety of these.
So, tell me – how are you basting? Did you select one quilt you wanted to finish or simply pick another one on the listing? I’ve one basted and I plan to get one more prepared for my retreat next weekend.
If you are participating in the challenge, share below and Oda May will choose someone to win a sweet little decoration!
