Thank you so much for all your tips and hints on the subject of spray basting. I can see I’m going to have to give it a whirl. Most people seem to swear by the spray for smallish items at least, but several have warned off trying to tackle large ones. I suppose at the end of the day that it’s going to be one of those things that comes down to a bit of practice.
So there’s nothing for it but to go on a mission to track down some basting spray. I can’t say I’ve ever seen any here, but then as I’ve never been looking for it, it could have been staring me in the face in the local quilt shops…..otherwise I’m sure I can get some in London when I’m over for the Fat Quarterly Retreat in June (yippeeeeee!)
In the meantime, there’s work to be done, so I’m back on my knees using the old tried and trusted method (needle and thread) to baste Hopscotch. I have some very pretty Terrain yardage to back it with and I’m looking forward to getting quilting on this – it’s small enough that it should be done in the twinking of an eye….
….once I manage to decide how to quilt it, what colour thread to use …..blah…blah….
No seriously, do you think white thread would be too boring? I feel like I have too much white in the quilt to use anything else – colours would distract too much from everything else that’s going on.
So here I am, bottom in the air and a with project to keep me out of mischief this weekend!
Have a good one!
