TUTORIAL: Tired of kneeling on the floor to baste a quilt? The Basting Board Technique.

A long time ago I said I would show people my basting board.....and how to use it.

As some of you may already know, I have a few physical limitations that make the normal basting on the floor method totally unrealistic and unachievable. As a result, I have started using this method. I don't have to kneel, crawl on the floor, reach across long distances or use tape, and I can sit on a comfy chair when I pin.

Liberty Love

I was sorting my stash, trying to put some sort of order to it, when I stopped and realised that it was my SCRAPS that actually needed sorting.

Although most of my fabrics were neat and folded, my scraps had been folded unceremoniously and plonked in no certain order whatsoever. That needed changing.

I will be rearranging my other scraps when I have the time, but the ones that grabbed my eye first were the Liberty quilting cotton scraps that I have accumulated over the last two years, however, never actually put together.

I was quite surprised at the amount I had.

I ironed them all out and refolded them in a uniform way and actually started a project (yeesh! totally not the plan!) and threw in a few Tana Lawn pieces too (making more scraps in the process).

Have a colourful weekend!
