A friend and quilting genius warned me that using Little Folks voile on the back of a quilt posed a great problem with basting. The gorgeous soft flowing fabric simply would NOT stick to the masking tape used to hold it flat on the floor.
Well, I had a small stroke of genius the other night and realised that all I had to do was sew some cotton around the edges of the backing and stick the masking tape down to THAT.
Here is the whole backing (wrong side) taped down ready for basting.
Lay down the next 2 layers ...
Add something like 700 pins ...
And get quilting!!
This is seriously going to be the softest snuggliest quilt I have ever made!!
It's nice to have a hand quilting project to keep my knees warm on cold evenings.
