|For this quilt I used invisible pins.|
(Ok, so no invisible pins after all.)
The benefit of this method is speed, pure and simple. It was quick and easy to spray baste and not having to stop free motion quilting to remove pins was a dream. I really can't understate the time saved - I can't believe it myself but I've probably halved my quilting time. The only niggle I have is that the white fabrics seem to have picked up lint and dust, probably from the sticky solvent, so after binding this quilt will immediately need washing. I think on the balance of things, it's a small price to pay. Oh, did I mention that there are no puckers in the back?!?
I've ordered some cotton batting for my next quilt project (I have a stack of Kaffe Fassett fabrics waiting, and I'd like to try a quilt without any white. Angst!)
