I had the good fortune of having some lovely ladies come over and help me baste my quilt. The quilt I am working on right now I had pinned. So this was my first time basting with stitches and stretching it on a frame. I am hoping it will lay flatter as a result. I think pinning is okay for smaller projects but this quilt above is king size. I am very excited to see it is making its way to my lap! And then of course on my bed.
