I JUST HAD TO TEAR OUT A LOT OF QUILTING, BECAUSE EVEN THOUGH I HAD MEASURED MARKED AND PINNED ALL OVER THE PLACE THE BACKING SHIFTED.
This is a simple stitch in the ditch quilting, but since the back is pieced it will look bad if the lines aren't straight. With all the talent on this board, I sure hope some on can share a quilting pearl with me.

Here's the quilt and the backing and I hope somone can help.
Thanks,
Jan

Is it too late for basting spray glue?

I've never tried that, but how does it work and what are the pro/cons?

i would hand baste the center square on the back, the big seam lines on the back and all the other landmarks on the back that you feel are critical to line up with the landmarks on the front.

then all the other sections i would pin baste.

then roll up the sides and quilt from the center out to the edges.

Are you hand quilting, or machine quilting? If machine, the spray basting will be wonderful. If hand quilting, pin basting is the way to go.
Have you seen the gun basters with the plastic tags using the plastic grid system? I have seen them demonstrated for large pieces, and they look like they would be good for what you have there.
BTW, the quilt is beautiful! :lol:
