A little obsessed

Still having fun with back basting.
The block is a little wrinkled from all the handling. Maybe I should use a hoop.

Many people have asked about back basting. I thought I'd write a tutorial when I get the hang of it, but why reinvent the wheel?
Marjorie has an amazing tutorial on her blog:
Just look in the top right corner. Thanks for sharing your knowledge Marjorie!


  1. It looks great Anina! I think you already have the hang of it!

  2. It looks like this method is really working for you-- the block is looking awesome so far!!!

  3. I hate hand applique, but want to love it. I would like to try this technique and see if it works for me. I am just such a klutz with a needle in my fingers!


  4. This is looking great. I have a few applique projects in mind, and I think I am going to try the back basting and see how it works for me. Thank you for the link.

  5. Looks fantastic! You're doing a great job there!
