MicroStitch Basting Gun for Quilts

A basting gun is a hand-held tool that can be used in place of pins, basting spray, or other basting methods. This MicroStitch tool holds the layers of your quilt together as you get it ready to quilt.

Looking at the gun from the top, you’ll see a sort of T-shaped slot. This is where you’ll place the plastic tacks.

Insert the tags


Put the gun in slightly sideways so you can feel that you’ve gone through all the way.

Just like you normally would, lay out your three layers on a flat surface. Make sure to get your layers as smooth as you can. 

Lay out your three layers


I start in the middle of the quilt and go from the middle to each side. Place each tag about a hand width apart.

Start basting your quilt

With just a quick pull using tweezers and then a snip with your thread snippers, you can snip off the tacks with no problem. I do this as I am quilting.
