    Greetings to all.
    Can some one please help me i am about to put a quilt together but no where to lay the backing etc to sandwich them together my table isn't big enough and the edges are too wide to use bulldog clip to hold the back down. I really need to finish it before xmas.

    The floor is doable but backs usually suffer. Sometimes churches or lqs have large tables/areas where you can baste a quilt...

    I have gone to my church fellowship hall and put tables together to pin baste mine. Someone said they used tables at local library. Just thoughts.

    We have a couple of stores in our area where you can use their classrooms at certain times.

    Why can't you use your bed to sandwich your quilt. I do mine and its pretty easy to do that way. Just my suggestion. Have a great day.

    You can baste on a regular table - even a card table.
    Just center all layers and let sides fall to the floor. Smooth and stretch out. Baste the section on the top of the table. Then pull the next unbasted section to the top and continue until all is finished. I have basted queen size on a card table this way. The sides hanging over will keep the layers smooth and pulling to the top of the table further straightens it out.

    How do you pin your work on a soft surface? I always thought it had to be hard surface to be able to get the pins through the 3 layers. How do i use the bed for that? :(
