LOST QUILT!!!!

I'm posting for a quilting friend. We're hoping to find and return this beauty!

Last weekend after the ORIGINAL Sewing & Quilt Expo in Cleveland, Ohio, my Potpourri quilt went missing. I had lent it to a Pins and Needles in Middleburg Heights, Ohio and it went missing after the show when they had a third party pack up their booth. I guess they thought it would turn up in one of the boxes and I only learned about it on Thursday, April 2. I am devastated as I now need to make another sample for Quilt Market in Minneapolis. This pattern is one of my biggest sellers. If anyone sees this quilt, it is mine. I have not sold it, and I have not given it to anyone. Please share this with anyone you can.

Basting a Quilt - The Easy Way!

A new technique for basting

Here's another technique to baste your quilt. I saw it on one of my quilting groups and think it's a Great idea! They bought boards, but I'm thinking you could use empty bolt boards from your quilt shop, Joanne's, etc...and it would work as well. As far as using it for a full sized quilt, I'm not sure but at least you could start it as the center basting. From the center to the top and to the bottom and then to the sides without the board and know that it's nice and straight!
Here's the vid and hope that might help. I'd Love to sell my books and I have different techniques in there to baste, but there's always room for more Info!!!
