    I like to pin. It holds the layers tighter for me.

    Hi Violet

    I am only fairly new to quilting but my teacher uses a spray glue baste and it works well for me.

    Go to the search option at the top of the page and type in basting a quilt and I'm sure you will see lots of previous posts on this subject

    Hope this helps

    I always use large safety pins, about 3-4" apart. Taking them out as I come to them. Works for me.

    I've recently begun basting instead of pinning and I really like that better. I'm not as apt to run over a pin. That's no good for needles. Ask me how I know.

    Same here. I can baste a full size quilt in a few hours using Susan Schambert's method with the two boards. I still have the pins, but I mostly use them for smaller projects.

    In the past I have done the basting and the pinning methods. Since I started using 505 basting spray I don't imagine myself using any other method! It's what works best for me...

    I spray and pin, when I run out of pins, I baste. I HATE puckers! Except when DH puckers up for me ;-)
