On this first project I am using a low loft polyester batting on my QAYG and I am using a low heat iron on the fabric I am basting to it. So far I have never had any problems with melting. Also I never put the iron directly on the batting. I only let the iron come in contact with the 100% cotton fabric I am basting to the batting.
In a future QAYG technique quilt that I will be sharing the process of, I will be hand basting the squares, and also will pin baste some of the projects. So we can have an a discussion on various ways of basting.
I highly encourage sharing what works best for you continually as we explore QAYG techniques.
Thankyou again K9dancer. Umm! my Yorkshire wants to have the next dance... He is a real fun dancer himself.
