    Anyone used Tulle on a wall hanging/collage?

    I'm wondering if you can use basting spray to attach the tulle before you quilt over it? Otherwise, how do you keep it from moving around while you are sewing it it down?

    And, can yoiu just use tulle on the subject and not on the nackground or doe the tulle have to go across the entire wall hanging?

    Thanks, Watsoni

    Great question. I've seen it used but never tried it.

    Hey there Watson ... check out MaryKatherine here on the Quilting Board and also on her blog at
    https://marykayhopkins123.blogspot.com/

    ... yes, she uses tulle and will talk about a lot of pinning to hold it still, plus
    because she has a lot of small parts .
    She does tell a lot about her process ...
    ... so nice that she shares and is not a secretive Master of the trade!

    Hey Watson,
    I've used Tulle and I use fine straight pins to hold it in place while I quilt around it.

    I have used tulle over a wallhanging with tiny pieces. I pinned it with straight pins like rryder. I also stay stitched it around the outside. It worked fine but I hated the feel of the tulle.

    I used tulle in this Cheryl Lynch mini mosaic. in this pattern it is layed over the mosaic and when the borders are added it is sewn in, then quilted on top of the tulle. So I would lay it over you whole piece, stitch 1/8 from edge then quilt.

    I've used tulle on the last two quilts I've made. I've used the "bent" safety pins for pin-basting all the layers.
