    Clear plastic, sold by the yard, is very slick & as large as you want.
    Works for me.

    Thank you for your compliment. The quilt is called "Radiating Diamonds. A friend of mine designed the pattern. It is one of my favorite quilts to make. Thanks, Beth

Now I have a large table that fits my machine for under $30.00. It it's a bit rough around the edge that fits against the machine, but it serves the purpose. We quilters are quite resourceful aren't we.

    The mdf and plexiglass can be filed and sanded around the edges to make them smooth so that they are not rough.
    Thanks for sharing your project. I've been wanting to make a sewing extension table for my portable machine.

    Do you have pictures you could share?

    I bought the very same oven liner today at bed bath and beyond had a 20 percent coupon and am so happy I bought it. It works great. I kept mine in one piece. Placed it just to the left of the needle. I also have the supreme slider which works great but is small and I accidentally was pulling it away from my machine when it tore because I did not see the bobbin thread was pulling away from the needle hole. I taped the cut but it is very fragile now. The oven liner is much stronger and pliable and the price is right. Thanks to the people who give these fantastic tips on The Quilting Board.

    I actually bought the same product for my oven. Never dawned on me to use it as you have done. Back to the store with my next coupon. Thanks so much for sharing your creativity!
    Creative clutter is better than idle neatness.
