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

*** Please Note: I did not included any measurements so that you may make the quilt (or other item) any size that works for you.

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

Beautiful customer red and white quilt...lots of stars and log cabins. I really like the outer border too. She said she collected red fabrics for a year in order to get enough for this quilt. 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!

And still no dent in the scrap bucket.
The third pic is a wall hanging I made using the pattern My Whimsical Quilt Garden by Becky Goldsmith and Linda Jenkins.
The last pic is a wallhanging my mom just made for me. She did all

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
