I'm still pretty new to quilting and learning several new techniques. When I first began to quilt, I took a class and was told to pin the three sandwich layers together. Oh course, I bought the special quilting pins and began pinning every quilt I made. After reading on the APQ website that you should baste your layers together (according to all the patterns I've checked out recently), I was just wondering if this is a more up to date way to quilt? It sounds much easier. Any opinions would be appreciated.
