I found this idea and thought I would give it a try. I had a wooden T.V. tray in a closet that had never been used. I actually inherited it from my son when he moved back temporarily from the Air Force. My quilt area is upstairs. My ironing board is downstairs. I previously had a small portable ironing board upstairs, until I accidently stepped on it. It cracked in half. I don't think I have to worry about stepping on this one. This will really come in handy when piecing quilts. Can't wait to use it.
