I tried Sharon Schamber's method for basting a quilt using her YouTube tutorial. It looks so easy on the video and it was super easy!!!! I basted the quilt on my kitchen counter in about 45 minutes. The quilt is 68X54ish. The front was smooth and beautiful! I was ecstatic until I turned it over. There were puckers everywhere! I have no idea why it didn't work! Next I'm going to try the same method and tape the sides of the backing to the counter as I go. Maybe that will keep things taught.
So, the quilt is now rebasted and ready for quilting. Since I have no experience in FMQ, I'll do some wavy lines.
The other thing I must accomplish this month is to blog! My Joy keeps nudging me so here goes...
