A couple of people asked on my last post about why the pins were left open, and one was a no-reply blogger so I thought I would answer here.
When I learned about pin basting, I read that you're supposed to leave the pins open until you get them all in. If you close them as you go, you're lifting the layers and shifting them, so you can end up with puckers. There is a wee bit of danger in doing this....I have a few holes in my fingers, but I've never had puckers [or blood on my quilts]. I assure you they're all closed now. And.....drum roll....quilting has commenced!
If you want to read my post on how I baste quilts, you can find it here.
Have a great weekend everyone!
