Super cool quilt basting technique

I am trying to finish a birthday quilt in the next couple of weeks, today I am pin basting it so I can get it quilted.  I just had to look up again my favorite basting method, so I thought I would share it with you.

Board Basting

This is just genius, I have used it for two or three quilts already, much better than crawling around on the floor, and spraying nasty spray basting, which I did before I read about this.

Here is the top I finished (pieced on my lovely Singer 66 from the 40s).  I'll have to introduce you to that machine soon.

And here it is being pinned:


I hope this helps someone, I sure love this technique.  I bought some pre-finished mdf boards at a hardware store, they are 6 feet long and work great.
