Grid Basting - some commor errors

For any error on this type of mistake, the vertical stitches will not line up one on top of the other: there will be a slight jag, making this type of error (possibly) easier to spot.

It is important to keep in mind that an error in counting your basting grid can occur on the front or on the back, left or right, up or down. For a large project, or for an intricate repeating project, I have never regretted taking the time to create a basted grid to keep me correctly oriented between the graph on my pattern and the grid of my project. I hope you find this helpful!
