    I am not used to al th initials used by the quilters- what is mdf board? plus a few others I have seen. Maybe a lst of initials an d meaning would be helpful. I have basted on a table but it is time consuming. Nana-M

    I so agree with bj. Thank you. I have not sandwiched a large quilt yet.

    Sometime would you do a tutorial on FMQ with your home machine? Your directions for basting are so precise and helpful. :thumbup:

    Thank you for the information, I am 70 years old and long past the time where I could kneel on the floor. Plus room area is a problem, but your pictures really show how a large quit could be done in a rather small space. I like the idea of thread basting you just have to cut and pull threads instead of unpining all those pins. Thank you againl

    Not only is your quilt beautiful, but your method of basting is close to my heart. I'm slowly converting to spray basting, but can see your point on such a large project. Love your setup. Since I'm just up the "hill" from you (in Colorado) if you're in the neighborhood could you stop by and help me set up?

    I havent tried this method, but am sure going to give it a whirl. I have a carpenters star quilt (Christmas fabrics) that I am going to hand quilt and planned on using this method to baste. Great tute. Are you going to the quilt show in Phoenix at the end of this month?? I will be there and we are getting a meet and greet planned. Im from Mesa.
    Again, thanks for the wonderful tutorial you have shared.

    I did watch the video on You Tube but your directions are better and I like seeing the bigger boards. Thank you!
