What Is Quilt Basting?


Definition: Securing two or more layers of fabric or other materials together with long stitches or safety pins in preparation for final sewing. In quiltmaking, basting readies the quilt sandwich (typically three layers: the top, the batting and the backing) for hand or machine quilting.
