    What is your favorite way to secure quilt layers? Do you use Pins? Basting? Other?

    I like the old-fashioned quilting safety pins personally. But I quilt on a domestic machine. So they work best for me and how I quilt.

    extra large basting pins. I havn't the patients to sew it once to baste then again to quilt. Love the basting pins, it helps me to see how far I have gone. Just love working a section and popping open pins to take them away. Gives me a sense of accomplishment.

    I use basting spray. I love the way it holds and goes much faster than pinning.
