So, onto the boards. Let me just say this worked great for me. My boards were left-overs from a remodeling project, cut 80 inches each, primed. I thought that this size would suit most of my quilts. If the quilt is larger I would set up a super long folding banquet table that I have stored in the garage. The extra length of the table would work if any fabric hangs off the edge of the board. Did that make sense?
I followed the instructions on the video and had no problems at all. Using the herringbone stitch to baste, I felt like I was making a tailored jacket again. All in all I give this method 5 out of 5 stars. Thank you again Jeanneke for recommending this! Now onto the quilting. I haven't decided on a design yet, but since the quilt is so linear I am thinking a contrasting pattern. I also plan to add some applique to this quilt. It is rather boring as it is and could use some trailing vines or something. The links below will take you to the two Sharon Shamber videos explaining the board basting technique.
This book has some interesting ideas. I'll review it on another post.
