    I have a cheap curtting table from Joanns that I clip the backing tightly to with dollar store large black paper clips that are spring loaded. Then I lay the batting and front on top and pull not quite as tight and clip. If it is a big quilt that is too big for the table I do half at a time.
    Then I pin about 3 to 4 inchs apart.
    Until I figured this out I had many folds and ruined my quilt.
    I cannot get down on the floor to do this so the table is a life saver.
    I also have some clips from Quilt in a Day that hold the quilt to the table.

    Love2Quilt - I made the paper pieced kitty that matches your paper pieced puppy in your avatar! :) Lol* Just thought I'd share...


    Anyhow - this has already been mentioned, but I have goofed up many o'quilt backs myself! Quilting wrinkles right into the back of the quilt. I tape the back of my quilt down to the floor before layering on the batting and top to baste. I am careful of the backing I use too...some cottons just seem to wrinkle up more than others...especially the very thin ones. :) Good luck!
