Sharon Schamber's Basting Technique

I finally finished one of my UFOs and I have Sharon Schamber  to thank.

Sharon posted two videos on YouTube that demonstrated how to baste a large quilt using two boards and a herringbone basting stitch.  

Her method is genious!  

Here's a couple of pictures of my finished Scrappy Bargello.  The Scrappy Bargello pattern I used came from Quiltville

I also used Bonnie's idea of piecing my backs from large squares of fabric.  A great way to use up some of my bargain basement, garage sale stash!
