I LOVE TO QUILT
Gmama Jane and Ellen after 3 hours of trying to put Humpty Dumpty back together...AGAIN..after THREE ATTEMPTS
THERE IS A YUCKY SIDE TO EVERYTHING AND
IS MY LEAST FAVORITE
I CAN NEVER FIGURE OUT THE BEST WAY TO KEEP MY QUILT BACK AND MY OWN BACK STRAIGHT...NO LUMPS, BUMPS, OR CATERWAMPUSITIS
I've used straight safety pins, curved safety pins. thread basting, glue basting, on the floor, on an island, on a table....you name it
I'VE TRIED BASTING ON A KITCHEN ISLAND
BUT IT'S NEVER QUITE LARGE ENOUGH... I baste half of the quilt at a time as suggested by Harriet Hargrave in her book...she uses clamps on the sides but my counter tops are not the right size for ANY of the commercial clamps.
I've tried putting tables together but then there's the gap between the tables that can cause a lump on the back...ASK ME HOW I KNOW THAT?
I just wish I could observe some of YOU putting YOUR quilts together so I could come up with the perfect plan.
PLEASE tell me...
HOW DO YOU PUT HUMPTY DUMPTY BACK TOGETHER AGAIN????
Any suggestions to make this side of quilting more palatable??
