Basting the quilt down

Recommended Posts

I don't change the stitch length when basting down the top, sides SR if the stitches are not going to be removed. I usually set the spi at about 11 but will use 10 when quilting a flannel top or increase it to 12 if I am stitching a denser design.
If I am basting down an area where I will be removing the stitches when I will single basting stitch (using the white left button) 1/4 to 1/2 " apart.  If it is a large area then I turn off the SR and baste the area accordingly and try to keep the stitches under 1/2".
