    I love my island.....

    This is how I baste my quilts. Easier than crawling on the floor. I do like to spray baste, but would not want to get any spray on my cabinets, so this works good for me.

    Beautiful quilt, I use our glass topped dining table to sandwich and pin my quilts.

    Great idea! Thanks for posting.
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    Love the quilt. What pattern is it? Love your countertop too - looking to remodel my kitchen so I'm paying attention to details like that. And the clips are a good idea too.

    Thanks for the comments!!! The name of the pattern is Radiant Suns. I had found a quilt kit from Quilt Cove (online), but asked if she would pick out material for the colors I wanted. She was wonderful!! Anyway, it is a wall hanging and I have no idea how I am going to quilt it..... Funny, my husband thinks it looks "younger" than my other quilts I have done. I think he meant more modern, hahahah!

    Great idea. I'll have to keep that in mind. I usually spray baste in sections by unrolling about two feet at a time, spraying, unrolling, spraying and so on and so on. Seems like this would be much easier. I have an old carpet needle (curved) that is great for basting! BTW, I love the quilt you're working on. Colors are great as is the pattern. Thanks for sharing.
