Pin basting

This is a section of the courthouse quilt (it's in 2 sections at the moment). It is undergoing pin basting. I pin baste on the dining room table. I put a cutting mat under the part I'm working on. I use that big wooden slat that appears in the photo to smooth out the quilt before I pin it. I will be free-motion quilting on the sewing machine. I have to wind up a bunch of bobbins first.

It's looking good! I've been afraid to try free motion quilting on something so large. Controlling the bulk is hard -- do you have a good way to do that?

Yes, I do. I quilt in sections, and then join the sections together. If you read back through my blog, you'll see that I put in the directions for my method.
