You know I love to baste, right? There is something so very BASIC about it. Something so satisfying that pins, staples, or double-sided sticky tape can never offer.
The first challenge for these two valances, for Suzie of Cottages to Castles, was the double mitered corners, and the second challenge was the interlining. The interlining is where the basting comes into the story.
First, the mitered corners. Mitering does not happen in my comfort zone. I have to travel far outside, venturing way up on the learning curve, to do mitering.
