I’m a pin baster. Especially in the winter, seeing as I only spray baste outside and it is decidedly wet in the Pacific Northwest during the winter. With my terrible hands though, pin basting is not a fun job. I still like it better than binding but it isn’t much higher on my list…until now.
I broke down yesterday and headed to my local quilt shop, Ruby Street Quiltworks in Tumwater, WA (if you are local to this area, I highly recommend them!), and bought myself a present, the Kwik Klip by Paula Jean Creations.
The quilt I basted yesterday was only 49×49 but it is probably the fastest I have ever pin basted anything! I am so excited about this tool. My fingers did not hurt at all and I was even able to baste some hexies later in the evening while watching Project Runway.
No pictures of the quilt yet, you will have to wait until next week!
Have a wonderful weekend! I will be cleaning and hopefully sewing some bee blocks.
