    I'm just finishing up Turning 20 and I realize now how important it must be to baste. This is the second quilt I've attempted. And it's pretty much a disaster.

    Should I have basted first and then added my binding before I started quilting? I think I did it backwards.

    Binding usually goes on last, after the quilting. Since even the best pinned and basted sandwhich can shift during the quilting process.

    Thanks! That's funny. If I can figure out 'how to post' I will...But, I can't stitch a straight line.

    Make sure you pull that backing real tight, then the batting and then your top. I use alligator clips and clip mine to the edge of a cutting board , then I pin from center out. I pin about 9 inches apart. Getting that sandwich done right is the hardest part for me! We are glad to have you here, and be sure to ask if you need help.
