I have just about finished the attaching of Batting and backing for my quilt. A would like advise on tacking the front to the batting and backing so it looks neat and finished. I plan to tack the layers with pins to keep everything neat and stable so nothing moves. Any ideas on the tacking without using the sewing machine? I was going to tack the corners of the blocks with a simple stitch (like when you stitch a button in place) to save time as it's for a gift for Christmas. My other thought was a simple slip stitch randomly just to secure the layers. I look forward to suggestions. Sorry, I don't have any pictures at this time.
