Almost Finished : :



Yesterday was basting day for my latest quilt-as-you-go make, my giant Crisscross Diamond quilt in Pat Bravo's Etno collection and AGF Prisma Elements! I snapped a few photos just after I finished piecing together my quilt back, before trimming away some of the excess. I like to have just a 2-2.5" overage on all sides. Measuring almost an 80" square, this quilt is big enough as it is!

Basting Day !

After I shared a photo on my Instagram and Facebook yesterday I received lots of questions asking both about basting on the floor and spray basting. I don't have a tutorial to link to, but I can share that I always spray baste on my nice, flat living room floor using ThermoWeb's SpraynBond basting spray! Remember this quilt-as-you-go means that my quilt blocks are already sewn to my batting squares.

To baste I lay my quilt with the top side down on the floor and I spray the batting side to attach my quilt backing working my way out from the center to the bottom and then from the center to the top.

Today these brand new Fat Quarter Shop exclusive Aurifil Thread Boxes showed up just in time to use for finishing my quilt!

Aurifil's 50 weight thread spools are my very favorite to use for machine piecing and quilting! I'm especially loving this Tart Colorway!!

This spool of aqua will be perfect for piecing and attaching my Etno Pyramids in Aqua binding!

I'm hoping to be back soon with a finished Crisscross Diamond quilt to share!

    1. There's just minimal quilting needed to attach the backing. I'll stitch 1/4" from both sides of the seams running top to bottom and then left to right. From the backing side it will look like a grid. Simple and fast!
