    I made a quilting frame from an old card table with the top in bad shape. We removed the top, then I padded the top frame by wrapping with strips of batting, and sewing a fabric cover over that, so I can pin the quilt to it.
    I would not want to quilt a queen or king using this, but works great for twin or smaller!
    The handy part is it just folds up when not in use.

    Great idea...... and I bet you can quilt from all four sides to the middle. How creative you are.

    That's very clever. Wish I had an old card table. That would be very handy to have one like that.

    Sounds like a great idea. Something to look for in thrift shops/garage sales. (The old card table)

    Thanks for sharing your tip! It is also great to repurpose something.
