107 | Squaring Up, Basting, and Free-Motion Quilting

Lessons in Creativity | Jenny Kae Parks | Runtime (9 min)

There are several steps to complete before quilting your quilt. The first is squaring up your quilt top, and Jenny talks about what to watch for in order to make sure points of triangles or other units aren’t cut off when doing so. Second, you’ll need to baste your quilt top, batting, and backing together. Jenny demonstrates both how to spray baste and how to pin baste. Then, learn how to set up for free-motion quilting and watch as Jenny does a swirling all over design showing both how to get larger and smaller stitches.
