Before the new pup came on board, I had the good sense to lay Son's quilt out all over the living room floor and get it pin basted.
It was quite a job. The Mister had to be brought in to help tape the backing to the floor. I am so glad I bought the one piece backing that Connecting Threads sells. It saved a lot of work and will make machine quilting it so much easier. I even used spray adhesive on the batting to hold it in place. I'm not take any chances.
It took a long time to get all those pins in but now it is nice a secure and waiting patiently for some doodads to arrive from Amazon to help get the job done a little easier. At least I hope so.
I am taking this Craftsy class and I discovered that I needed some extra thingamabobs to help my machine do a better job of sliding everything around while maintaining the right tension with the bobbin. Or something like that. We'll just have to see.
