    problem

    I like to quilt my own quilts. Problem: I am unable to get on the floor to sandwich a quilt. I would love to hear how others have dealt with this since I can't believe I'm the only one. Please help!

    I have a large Dining table. I put 2 cutting boards on top of it and get to work. The cutting boards are those cardboard things.

    I sandwich all my quilts on banquet tables with bed risers underneath.

    the local quilt shop's class room- if we call ahead & let them know - and no classes are going on they will push tables together to make it big enough- & even help

    I had a large counter height kitchen table that was great for me. Large enough to baste large areas of the quilt and high enough to keep most of the quilt off the floor. Sad to say it was too large for my small kitchen and I had nowhere else to put it so I had to give it to my sister .

    I use my cutting table. I wish my sewing room were larger so that I could have two cutting tables pushed together. The one table works, I just have to pin in sections.

    I too feel your pain. If I get down on the floor, can't get back up from it. Smaller quilts I baste on my dining table. Larger, use my bed (very carefully).

    Several people here like to use this method but I haven't tried it myself

    I don't want to brag but I can still fit into the earrings I wore in high school.

    Floor (the worst), kitchen table, folding table+kitchen table, kitchen island (nice and high).
    I've got a smile on my face, I've got four walls around me

    I'll win now but sometimes I'll lose
    I've been battered, but I'll never bruise
