I am rather new to quilting. Need more experience in assembling a table runner prior to quilting. What is the best way to anchor all the layers together so one ends up with a smooth finished product? Should I pin or baste or both? What about the basting spray? I have never used it. I hope to stitch in the ditch and wondering if this will work well with a regular foot on my machine. I plan to bind the runner once the quilting is finished. Any tips would be appreciated.
