    I am having a little trouble with this. Are you quilting by hand? Do you have this quilt in a frame and using it on your machine? I am sorry, but it is not that clear to me.

    I will try to take pics... I don't have anything that needs to go up right now.. might have to demonstrate with a regular sheet :)

    Yes, I'm a hand-quilter, not machine quilter. I'm pretty lazy, I want to skip all the "steps" and just quilt.. so the quilt police are probably going nuts right now!

    I've watched the tut, and wondered how well it works for LARGE quilts - like queen & king - need lots of space, has anyone tried it for large quilts? how did it go???? Thanks

    Size of quilt doesn't matter--the board needs to extend beyond the width of quilt for at least an inch. I have two sets of boards. Bed boards work fine. I covered mine with fabric. For a large quilt it would be easier if you had a friend help-one on each end. Also, a chair with casters is good. My suggestion is to try it with a wall or lab size quilt first.
