Spray Basting




It was a glorious day yesterday afternoon. I managed to piece two quilt backs and decided to spray baste three quilts out the back. Once I had cleaned the table and chairs off, I spent a lovely couple of hours out there cutting wadding, then stretching and spray basting the three quilts in the late afternoon sunshine. Various children drifted in and out to chat (including picklesticks who is now back home in Adelaide, she drifted in on the phone) and then the job was done. I basted the small zigzag scrap quilt I put together last week, little pieces of sunshine from here, and my do. Good Stitches quilt from May. So it looks as though quilting is my next thing!

Ahh, my can of spray baste is one of my best friends, it makes quilt basting so quick and easy.

I need to go and get some more spray baste. That stuff is the bomb. I tried it once though on a large quilt and it didnt seem to work as well.

Go you for whizzing through so many crafty endeavours!
