Quilting 101: How to Baste a Quilt

Hi friends! I’m back with another video in my How to Quilt series. I hope you’re enjoying these posts! Today I’ll be showing you how to baste your quilt top and get it all ready for quilting!



There are a few ways to baste a quilt top, today I’m going to show you how to pin baste and how to spray baste. Hopefully this will help you decide which method you prefer, and I’ll share my tips for doing both!

Just to clarify, you do not need to do both methods at the same time. You’ll either want to pin baste your quilt or spray baste. But not both. Unless you really really like basting. Winking smile

I use my kitchen floor to baste my quilts because it’s a nice large open area. But I’ve also seen people do this on their wall by pinning the quilt back to the wall which is probably better on your back!
