Simple Strips Quilt Along – Spray Basting Tutorial

Pop on over to  We All Sew (BERNINA’s blog), where I am sharing my Wall Spray Basting Tutorial. This is an idea I’ve had for quite some time and I’m so excited that it works!!

Spray Basting Tutorial

My absolute favorite way to baste a quilt is by using 505 adhesive spray. My best tip is to spray the quilt top and quilt backing (rather than the batting) and then iron the whole thing when you are done. That way the whole quilt sticks together and you don’t have any shifting when machine quilting on a regular home sewing machine!

Sharing is Caring

If you are quilting along, be sure to share your work in progress over in my Facebook group at Quilt with Christa. You can also hashtag it on instagram #simplestripsqal. love to see how you are doing!

    I noticed that you open your seams – something that I love to do as well! However, I was always taught that I could never stitch in the ditch when quilting as the seams aren’t as strong. Have you ever had this problem when machine quilting?

    Christa, I have been so impressed with your posts and saw in an earlier post that your first machine was a bernina 1630. I am new to quilting (less than a year now) and I purchased a used Bernini 1630 Inspiration Plus. (I believe it to be a 96?) I am still trying to figure out what stitches to use to machine quilt (other than free motion) and was interested in your thoughts on how best to learn what I stitches I could use to finish the quilt. I recently realized how to do a serpentine stitch but was curious on others – like maybe a scallop or something else visually interesting? I’m just not ready to tackle free motion on my quilts and am looking for additional options.
