    the table cloth would work well for a block but wouldn't hold 3 layers of a king size quilt unless i am misunderstanding?

    I never even thought of using the insulation boards to hold my quilt layers on for spray basting. I don't really have any wall space that I could use for that though. I have some folding tables that I use. I used to get down on the floor, but it was too hard to manage that way.

    I agree! I was on the wooden floor pinning and it took forever. I watched a video and the lady just clipped the quilt back on, spray basted the smoothed the batting on, sprayed once again and smoothed the top on and it was done in no time and she was on to the machine. Looked soooo much better than crawling around! I say that's the way for me!

    The boards must be what she used but I wonder what pins she used when she said she pins the layers to whatever was underneath. What pins would hold all three layers like that because vertically they would be heavy.

    Also, I was hoping not to mount them permanently on the wall. If I just lean them, what holds them steady while I am pinning (using what I have no idea) the layers to it. I can see the boards sliding all over or semi-bending or curving with all that weight. I will just have to try it and improvise! Sounds like a trip to the hardware store for me. Maybe I will find clamps of some sort or something like C clamps but not near as heavy? I will let all know how it works once I figure it all out.

    Thanks to you board members! If I cant find what I am looking for in the Search, this board always has SOMEONE who knows the scoop. I say it every time but I really appreciate all the help and advice. This will be my first time spray basting so Hopefully I wont be tooo heavy handed and it will work as I am told it will. (fingers crossed)

    I went to Menards and bought two panels of pink insulation: 4'x8'x2". I covered them with flannel sheeting (twin set). They lean against my wall. Except for a windy day with the windows open my blocks stay up nicely for arranging. On windy day I use my yellow-head quilt pins.

    I make bed size quilts and sandwich them on the floor. Wouldn't trust anything that big to stay put.

    I've made a version using rubbery sort of tiles that are veneered with cork.I found them at a shop that sells liquidated stock, so I was in the right place at the right time.

    My daughter came up with something that has worked for me. We got two long trim boards, drilled a hole on each end, and use long screws with wing nuts on them. This allows the two boards to clamp together. This is hung from a chain attached to the boards which go through hooks in the wall. I can clamp a piece of insulation board into this and sandwich my quilts. I have even clamped the quilts in themselves and sandwiched the quilts.
