I posted a question on another forum but I'm afraid it's getting lost in other conversations. You know, getting pushed along to another page. So I thought I'd post it here too for more input. Here it is, copy/pasted:
Hey ladies, guess what I've been doing since yesterday? Finally, I'm quilting a top I pieced a long time ago. Actually the piecing was started in 2012. This is the one I learned piecing on (bad English, I know). Just doing ditch stitching right now and thinking of trying my hand at hand quilting here and there in the blocks. I have a question for whoever knows: Should I pin baste the blocks when I'm hand quilting? I will be using a hoop. Or is it better to thread baste? Or maybe no basting? The blocks are 12". I'm wondering if I can skip the basting since there will be ditch quilting around each block, and also some ditch quilting within the blocks.
So I thank all of you ahead of time, because I know I'll get feedback here :)
