When I was 30 and putting the 'sandwich' together, I sat on the floor, taped the backing down, laid out the batting and then the top and then I basted all while on my hamds and knees. Well, now, almost 40 years later, I do not sit on the floor for much -- my knees are not what they were and my dining table is not large enough. I have been know to use the tables at the church hall and to beg help from friends with more table room than I, but that is not always convenient.
Yesterday I laid a twin size quilt across our bed (a double), slid a smooth piece of wood under it and basted -- OK, but not ideal. Others must be in this position -- any ideas?
