Almost everyone whom I know at Pancho Villa State Park is a Quilter!
AND they know a lot more about quilting than I do!
They decided that we needed to take over a crafting room in the Visitor center and spread out my quilt to remedy so problems!
In the above photo they (Patti and Karen are shown) also decided that all the bating and quilting stitches that I had placed had to be removed!
We taped the backing fabric to the tabletops so that it would not slide out of position! Note that Karen offered to and did get onto the floor to do the taping!
The quilt was then placed very carefully onto the backing fabric and the safety pins added to connect the layers together. Then the basting began all over again! The basting threads were lined up about every four inches and in all directions!
These are some of the hands basting the layers together.
The basting is not finished, but it is begun, and hopefully in a way that will keep the layer from bunching up and ruining the quilt!
