I sandwich the backing and batting with the quilt on top.I have a big snack bar/counter so I work on that but if you have a dinning room table that would work just as well.
I start to pin on the short end of the quilt .As you can see I let the rest drape over the table on to the two snack bar chairs I have there.
You need lots of pins for sure!!
I start by pinning the side of the quilt that is closer to me . Smooth out the fabric. I pin a few rows then I ROLL the quilt and pull it forward thows me. Then I smooth out the fabric starting in the middle,pin,working out to the sides. Keep rolling the fabric till you have it all basted!!
Here it is all pined!!Yea!!!
Now I need to go quilt this baby !!!
