I read somplace the proper way to handbaste the underlining but cannot find it now. Does anyone out there know? I think you are suppose to handbaste down the grainline, but not sure.

I use tailors basting but while I run my basting vertically on the fabric peices I don't bother keeping exactly to the grain line. Tailors basting involves taking short crossgrain stitchs about 1" apart vertically so you end up with long diagonal 'floats' and the fabric won't slip in either direction (if you just do a running stitch the fabric can slip in the stitiching direction).
