    The link and pictures were helpful. Definitely the Sharon Schamber method...and she definitely needed a couple of tables to make it work.

    I don't even have a room big enough for that, let alone the tables (which could be purchased more easily than the room LOL).

    Thanks for your post.

    To be a good sewer, you have to be a good ripper.

    The tables that fold in the middle are easy to store and move. They are inexpensive too for the value. I like the ones at Lowes. They are a better quality table if you use plan on using them a lot and won't vibrate if used for a sewing table.
    Got fabric?

    My DD and I use Sharon Shamber's method for all of our quilts. We use folding plastic tables. Mine were purchased at Costco but I think I have also seen similar tables at Walmart. For larger quilts we use two 30" x70" tables (when the tables are folded out) and for smaller quilts two plastic tables 24"x48" butted up to each other. We do not thread and needle baste, we use quilter's safety pins or Pinmoors. The boards we use are 8 feet long. But 10 or 12 foot boards can be purchased. With two people pinning the process goes quickly.
