    The best way for basting, as far as I am concern,,,,is Sharon's Schem(I forgot her full name)...she has a mthod with two boards pressing the fabric...no pins needed and its coming out much better.....She is also famous for her free motion quilting....
    Sorry I will try to look for the site and will post it later (I hope to find the place)

    So many of you use spray adhesive for basting. Dumb question, doesn't this gum up your needles, either hand or maching?

    No. I've only machine quilted it, and the needle was fine. Others have posted that they hand quilt it also with no problem.

    I hope that I have added this link properly
    You may find some great information from her site.
    She is an award winner. I like the video about basting and binding.

    How do you spray a large quilt, like a king size? What do you lay it on and how do you get the pieces to go together? Thanks
