Basting

We all have our least favourite chores when it comes to quilting, and mine is basting. I like the designing, the sewing, the quilting, and I l-o-v-e sewing on that binding, but dread the tedious process of securing the layers. When I'm up for some exercise, I spread the quilt on the livingroom floor and use masking tape to hold the fabric taut while I pin. (The exercise part comes in as I have to move the furniture out to get a big enough space to do this.) When the Grace Frame is not occupied with a handquilting project, it works wells for basting. Here I have my Anticipation top in the frame, ready to be removed for machine quilting. This makes three quilts basted and ready to quilt.
