If you are a "non-responder or OpenID-er" which to me means I have no way of responding to a comment that you've left, please leave a way for me to get in touch with you, especially if you're participating in a blog give-away or if you are asking for information or links.
By leaving your email within your comment, I can find you. I realize that this is sometimes a scary thing to do with scams and all but if you disguise the email as say.....

this is the perfect way to hide from the unwanted eye. So please help me out if you are one of the non-responders.
Thank you, in advance.....Ravelly Rhonda!!

Compilation

As some of you know, I'm on a quest to find a quick and easy way to baste a quilt. In a couple of previous posts I asked for suggestions and received some great one which I wanted to compile and repost so I'd know exactly where all the info was stored. (In other words, this is the only way I can keep up with it)
 
  • Marla's Crafts says that she uses pinmoors which I will have to research a little more before I purchase any. She stated that the pinmoors are a bit pricey but she likes them more than safety pins.
  • Deb uses 505 spray on her projects and only pins when she runs out of spray.  I have, in the past used 505 spray so Deb jogged my memory.
  • Tammy said that she uses pins to baste her quilts and has yet to find an easy and less time consuming way.
  • Dena uses Sulky's kk2000 adhesive spray. She likes it because you only use a small amount and it doesn't harm the environment.
  • Paula likes to thread baste her quilts. She uses a water soluble thread. I think that's neat and will have to try that one myself.
  • Lefuntz uses 505 spray adhesive on small quilts and had never tried it on large quilt. She will also going to try out the pinmoors very soon.
  • Doniene uses a spray to baste and then pins her quilts.
  • Gene uses hairspray to baste his quilts and has a video to show how it's done.
Many thanks to everyone for your help. I have enjoyed hearing about your techniques and Gene's video which I hope everyone will take time to watch.

Now here's my first finish of July......machine quilted and bound. Can I get a whoop, whoop!!

Glad to see you were missing because of sewing. I was afraid your Mom had problems with her doc appointment. It's very pretty and I think I have one almost like it...but for some reason I keep looking to see if a froggy is going to peek out from under a red block!
