I gave a peek at this project in my last post. It was made from a free pattern offered by the FatQuarterShop. I first saw the block on a post by Pat Sloan on one of her daily videos.
Last Wednesday I took a day for myself, and just moved the living room furniture out of the way for an afternoon of quilt-basting. I'm still an advocate of thread-basting, as I think it gives less opportunity for the top fabric to shift much, as opposed to pin-basting. I have yet to try any kind of basting spray.
