Basting a quilt

Basting a quilt is hard work...

First I gathered my supplies:
1)Painters tape
2)Spray adhesive for the quilt
3)Quilting safety pins (slightly bent to make it easier to pin)
4)Batting (I chose the cotton/poly blend)
5)Quilt back and top

I laid out the  back and taped it down to the floor...

the batting went on top of that...

then the quilt top...now to iron.

 Of course I, apparently, cannot do math and have a ton of extra batting (and a nice chunk of the backing - that I used to practice quilting)

Then I pinned it all together and rolled it up.

Next - on to the actual quilting!
I'm scared ;)
