    Althouth I often spray-baste on smaller quilts, when they are bigger and harder to handle, I prefer to thread-baste so everything stays in place better, and I don't have to worry about the glue coming loose and the sandwich shifting while I'm quilting.

    There are a couple of key factors that I LOVE about this method of basting:

    1. There is NO crawling

Size:  897.2 KBThis Bear Paw scrap quilt seemed to take me forever!! I think about three months. I went thru four bobbins of thread. It was a LOT of work even more than my Dear Jane! I ran out of the green border so ordered more as the backing fabric and will bring a little of it around to the front for the final border. I am very happy with how it turned out. I have NO idea when/how I will quilt it.

    I recently found out my sweet son and his wife of 5 yrs. are expecting

Kevin put a Baptist Fan in the center of the quilt, stitched in the ditch on the outer border, and did a small freehand vine design in the inner border. Thanks for looking!

    I used a 4 inch pantograph for the borders, turning the quilt for each of them. I quilted the top border with the panto then free motion quilted the body basting the side borders as I went.
    This pictures shows the quilt on the frame with the body quilting
