So, so helpful! There is always something new for me to learn in quilting!

Penny, I meant to share this earlier but life got in the way. :) I have recently discovered 505 Adhesive - it is specifically made for fabric basting and it is incredible. I found some at a quilt shop - it doesn't seem to be available at Joann's or Michaels. A little goes a long way and it is non-toxic and doesn't smell at all. I tape the backing down, lay the batting on top of it, and fold half of the batting back. I spray the batting and fold it back down. Then I do the same thing to the other side so the batting is now basted to the back. I repeat this for the top and I can baste an entire throw-size quilt in about 10-15 minutes with NO pins. I left one quilt basted like this for 3 months and the adhesive was still perfect. No gummy needles, and it washes out perfectly in the first wash. LOVE THIS STUFF!! I can't say enough good things about it. :)

Wow what an amazing list of information. I have never quilted, in fact I am starting a course in the New Year. I am sure that this information will be so helpful when I have my first try.
