I've been basting some things together today in preparation for quilting them. This top was made by my mom. It is going to be a tree skirt for underneath a Christmas tree. I think she plans to give it as a wedding gift. It's not a great photo, but the best I can do today. I'll take a better one after it is quilted.
Then I decided I'd baste another top as long as I have my basting tables out. This top was also made by my mom. She gave it to me to quilt and then turn in to my guild as a charity quilt. I basted it using spray baste.
I've used this spray baste before unsuccessfully. I thought that I would give it another try on the charity quilt now that I have more experience quilting and using this spray on smaller projects. I'll let you know how it turns out. My confidence is already a little shaken and I haven't even gotten it down to the sewing machine yet. The spray started dropping chunks of glue onto the batting as I was spraying the back. I am hoping that this means the can is getting empty? I've had it a pretty long time, but we'll see ...
