One one end of the basting stitches, pull all the top threads to the backside. Begin knotting each set of bobbin and spool threads. Be sure to knot a couple times on each so they’re nice and secure. (If you want another layer of protection against popped knots, just dab a small bead of Fray Check on each knot.) Continue until you have all the thread ends knotted on the wrong side of that end of the bastings ONLY.
