    I would love to see a picture. I am a very visual person and I would love to try this out. I try to hit the thrift stores every now and then and want to keep an eye out for a card/quilt table.

    What a wonderful idea! Perfect for quilting in a small space! I use hoops because I don't have any room in my house to set up my standard quilting frame. Now I'll have to give something like this a try.

    That's a great idea. Can you fold the legs up and set it aside when you're not quilting?

    Yes, it does not change your ability to fold up the table...

    The handy part is it just folds up when not in use.

    I did the same thing!!! I use great big binder clips like you get from office supply store to hold quilts in the frame. I quilted in the ditch on a king size quilt this way.

    Try to visualize a card table with the center cut out then imagine a large quilting frame with legs. You just cut out the center back to the wooden frame all around.
