Spray Basting a Quilt
My larger quilts get sent to the longarm quilter, but this small wall hanging will be easy enough for me to manage! I'd bought some pretty blue and cream fabric from KIS Quilting Ltd in Ipswich that was just perfect for the backing, and I made sure I'd bought enough for the quilt sleeve too! I tend to spray baste my smaller quilts rather than pin basting (except for baby quilt, obviously) and had bought this can of June Tailor quilt basting spray several months ago (also from KIS) - it seemed more powdery and not so "wet" as my usual one is, and I actually preferred it to my usual brand of 505. Now it's all ready for some machine quilting, I just need to delve into my thread boxes and decide which colours I'm going to use!
